When police arrived, they located a victim who had taken refuge inside one of the businesses.

The person gave police a description of the suspect vehicle, which was located near the shopping centre.

Police then arrested the three individuals inside.

Two men and a woman were arrested for assault causing bodily harm, uttering threats and forcible confinement.

Police say the force's forensic and K9 units have been dispatched to the scene, and the investigation is ongoing.
