A man has been charged over the alleged abduction of a woman at Robina.

The woman was on the phone to her mother at the time who then called police.

Police claimed negotiators managed to convince the man to pull over near Exit 66 at Gaven and set the woman free.

The man has since been charged with one count each of kidnapping, unlawful entry of a vehicle and assault.

He was due to appear before Southport Magistrates Court today.
