The man was treated for four serious stab wounds in his thigh and a wound on his stomach after he claimed a plastic bag was placed over his head by his abductors and he lost consciousness, reported Sandefjords Blad.
The victim was kept prisoner and tortured in an apartment on Tuesday night through to the early hours of Wednesday morning, before escaping onto “Dronningens gate” in Sandefjord.
The man was taken by ambulance to Vestfold hospital, Tønsberg.
A male witness who lives in a building near to where the man was found said: “We heard screaming from the staircase and went out to see what was wrong. We found the man, in his fifties, sitting with a towel around his legs. He obviously tried to stop the bleeding from several wounds.”
