The third accused in the Tolga case, a man in his 20s, was remanded in custody for four weeks on Friday morning. The police do not rule out more arrests.
This was stated by police attorney Vibeke Stolp Ekeland at a press conference on Friday afternoon.
During the entire custody, the man will be subject to a letter, visit and media ban, while during the first two weeks he will be subject to full isolation.
The man reported to the police on Thursday afternoon together with his defender, lawyer Lars Mathias Undheim, but has not yet agreed to be questioned.
Two other men aged 24 and 23 have already been remanded in custody for four weeks in connection with Sunday’s abduction of a 20-year-old man in Vingelen in Tolga municipality. The 23-year-old has also been given two weeks in solitary confinement. All three are charged with complicity in deprivation of liberty.
The abduction itself took place on Sunday night in a house in Tolga north of Østerdalen. When the police arrived, the 20-year-old was reported abducted, and the parents were taken to the emergency room. Sunday night he appeared on a train at Gardermoen, where he asked the conductor to borrow a telephone.
According to police, the 20-year-old was shot when he was abducted, but he was not seriously injured. One of the police theories is that debt was the background for the incident.
