Three People Arrested in Forcible Confinement Investigation
Prince George, B.C. – Three people are behind bars in connection with a forcible confinement and assault investigation in Prince George.
Cpl. Craig Douglass says the investigation began yesterday following allegations of the forcible confinement and assault of a woman at a residence in Prince George.
He says officers located and arrested three people thought to be involved in the “violent crimes.”
“Search warrants have been executed at two Prince George residences, a motel room in Prince George, a residence in a neighbouring community and a vehicle,” says Douglass. “Due to the sensitivity of the investigation and safety concerns for the victim, more specific information will not be provided at this time.”
In the meantime, he says all three suspects have been held in custody overnight and will likely make their first appearance in court later today.
Douglass says the investigation is continuing and that further arrests are possible.
“These targeted violent acts are related to the drug trade and all those involved are well known to police,” he says. “The victim is recovering from non-life threatening injuries.”
