Leduc RCMP

Nisku, Alberta – An extensive investigation continues into the events leading up to a two vehicle collision which occurred Nov. 6 at 9:47 a.m. in Nisku, AB.

The incident began at a residence in Leduc County at approximately 9:30 a.m., when an adult female and male, and a six-week-old baby were forced into a vehicle against their will and taken from the residence.

While the car was being driven, the adult male, who was in the trunk, managed to escape. Shortly after the adult female escaped with the baby.

A passerby offered assistance and secured all three in his truck. The suspect vehicle rammed the rear of the truck and ended up in the ditch. RCMP arrested five people at the collision location and launched an investigation, with the assistance of support units.

The Leduc RCMP General Investigation Section can confirm that of the five subjects arrested, three adults remain in police custody pending judicial interim releases. Two of the subjects arrested were youth, and have been released with no charges.

Charges are pending against the adults for kidnapping, and resist arrest. Investigation remains ongoing into several other components of this incident. The three people who were forced into the vehicle were not injured. The RCMP believe that this was a targeted incident and that all parties were known to each other.

Preliminary investigation leads RCMP to believe that this collision was not accidental. RCMP believe that drugs and/or alcohol are a contributing factor to this collision.

The Leduc General Investigation Section, Forensic Identification Section, Criminal Collision Investigation Team and the Collision Analyst are all assisting in what will be a comprehensive investigation.

RCMP can confirm that five people have been taken into police custody; four of whom were taken to the hospital. These people were not clothed at the time of their arrest.

If anyone in the public has information about either the collision or events leading to the collision, please all the Leduc RCMP at 780-980-7200, or call your local police detachment.
