They have all been remanded to appear before Tameside Magistrates Court on Thursday 16 December 2021.
At around 11.35am on Sunday 12th December 2021, police were called to reports that a vulnerable man - aged in his 50's - had been kidnapped from Oswald Street in Shaw.
During the kidnap the victim was assaulted and later dropped off at a different location.
Officers from the Tactical vehicle unit were involved in a pursuit with a vehicle believed to be involved in the incident and a foot chase which resulted in two men being arrested. A third individual was arrested some time later.
Fortunately the victim did not suffer serious physical injuries and is being supported by specialist officers.
