NISKU, Al­berta — Po­lice ar­riv­ing at a car crash in western Canada found five naked peo­ple in­side, and ended up ac­cus­ing them of kid­nap­ping a mother, her fa­ther and her baby.

Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice Cpl. Lau­rel Scott said the mother, baby and the woman’s fa­ther had been taken from a home and forced into a ve­hi­cle against their will. While the car was be­ing driven, the adult male, who was in the trunk, man­aged to es­cape. Shortly af­ter that the woman es­caped with the baby.

Au­thor­i­ties said a passer-by of­fered as­sis­tance and se­cured all three in his truck be­fore the sus­pects’ ve­hi­cle rammed the rear of the truck and ended up in the ditch.

Three adults among the sus­pects re­mained in cus­tody fac­ing charges of kid­nap­ping and re­sist­ing ar­rest, po­lice said. The other two sus­pects were youths and re­leased with­out charges.

Of­fi­cials said the three peo­ple who were kid­napped were not in­jured.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ued but of­fi­cials be­lieved drugs or al­co­hol might have been a fac­tor.
