He told the authorities that his wrists and feet were tied and that he was tied to a tree and attacked, the police said.
The victim later freed herself and called the police. According to Heather Hamel, a Manchester police spokesman, his injuries were not life threatening.
The authorities said the suspects and the victim know each other. The police said the alleged crime was not accidental, but Hamel declined to comment on a possible motive.
