A man has managed to escape a nightmare scenario in a Sydney housing complex after allegedly being held against his will and enduring attacks with a pair of scissors and a golf club.

Police are alleging that a 46-year-old man entered a unit with another 61-year-old man who is known to him at about 7pm on Saturday, before an argument developed between the two.

The younger man was then allegedly assaulted with a number of items including a pair of scissors and a golf club. The alleged assaults were also of a sexual nature according to police.
