Deputies responded to a home on County Road 18 in rural Wrenshall on Monday after receiving a report that a juvenile male was being held hostage, and "in really bad shape, tied to a chair and getting his head stomped on."

Sheriff Kelly Lake says the responding deputies found a resident of the address, 21-year-old Scott Kendrick Lindgren, attempting to pull out of the driveway with his girlfriend and a 17-year-old Duluth male in the vehicle. Lake said deputies could see a serious injury to the 17-year-old's head and other visible injuries to his face and neck.

Lindgren was arrested and has been charged with kidnapping; assault in the first, second, and third-degree; threats of violence; and false imprisonment. He was still in the Carlton County Jail as of Thursday afternoon.

Authorites believe other people may have witnessed the incident and are asking people with information to call the Carlton County Sheriff's Office at 218-384-3236 or 218-384-9520.
