A MAN has appeared in court over claims he kidnapped a woman.
Colin May, from West Rainton, is alleged to have snatched his victim in Durham in March.
The 23-year-old is also charged with assaulting her.
Sunderland Magistrates’ Court heard that May is also accused of stealing a white Fiat 500 from an address in Hetton, driving while disqualified and using a vehicle without insurance.
May, of Fair View, was not asked to enter a plea to the offences, which are all said to have taken place on March 14.
He was remanded in custody and will appear at Newcastle Crown Court on June 20.
