It is alleged the man forced a woman, who is known to him, into her vehicle after which he has driven off at high speed.

It is alleged that a short time later the vehicle has come to a stop on the corner of Gillies Range Road and Brynes Road Yungaburra, at which point the woman exited the vehicle and ran to safety.

It is alleged the man performed a number of high speed burn outs on Byrnes Road before exiting the vehicle at a park where he was detained by police.

The Mareeba man was transported to Cairns Hospital for treatment and was charged with deprivation of liberty, dangerous operation of motor vehicle, common assault and unlicenced driving.

The man will appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court today.
