Three people held against their will in Dawson Creek


On Saturday September 2, Dawson Creek RCMP were called to a rural residence after a woman reported she had been kidnapped and held against her will for several days.

The woman was one of two people who had apparently escaped their captors and informed police that a third victim was still being held against their will. The Dawson Creek RCMP called for assistance from the Emergency Response Team (ERT) and together attended the residence identified where they located a third victim. All three victims received medical attention for injuries described as non-life threatening.

The RCMP continue their investigation into this matter but have no reason to believe there is any risk to the general public.

Anyone with information on this is asked to call the Dawson Creek RCMP at 250 784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477.
