Qld man held captive, bashed with wrench

A Brisbane man has managed to flee a house where he was held captive for five hours and bashed in the head with a wrench.

The 18-year-old received facial cuts and bruising during the ordeal at a home at Keperra early on Friday.

His 22-year-old friend, who is accused of punching him and hitting him with a wrench, will appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Saturday charged with a string of offences including torture and deprivation of liberty.
