FORMER HOSTAGE BOYLE RELEASED ON BAIL

-

Former overseas hostage Joshua Boyle, who faces several assault charges, will be released on bail with strict conditions. Justice Robert Wadden handed down the decision Friday in Ontario court following a two-day proceeding. Boyle was arrested by Ottawa police in December and charged with assault, sexual assault, unlawful confinemen­t and causing someone to take a noxious substance. The charges involve two alleged victims, but a court order prohibits the publicatio­n of any details that might identify them or any witnesses. Boyle and his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, were taken hostage in 2012 by a Taliban-linked group in Afghanista­n. The couple — along with the three children they had during their five years in captivity — were freed by Pakistani forces last October.
