RCMP lay charges against naked suspects
Derek Scott was driving to a job site south of Edmonton when he got a call about an accident involving one of his work trucks, a stolen baby and some naked people.
It was something he had to see to believe.
The managing partner at LPH Industrial arrived minutes later in Nisku, Alta., to find his company truck had been rammed by what looked like a brand new BMW.
Inside the truck, Scott said, was a man, his daughter and her six-week old baby who had been allegedly kidnapped.
And from the car he saw police and firefighters pull out five people in the buff.
Mounties have charged three people in the bizarre case but have not released many details, including why the people in the car were not wearing any clothes.
A 27-year-old man and two women, 35 and 30, are to appear Thursday in Leduc court on charges of kidnapping and resisting arrest.
Two teenage girls were released without charges. RCMP say they are not naming the accused because doing so may identify the youths.
Four of the five were taken to hospital for “various reasons,’’ said police, adding drugs and/ or alcohol are considered factors in the case and that the suspects and victims all know each other.
They said the man, woman and baby were forced against their will from a home in Leduc County into the BMW.
RCMP said the victims were not injured.
