Man charged with abduction-related offences in connection with Thursday incident

For Immediate Release:24-Nov-2017 @ 3:44 PM
MRU #:CP17R001

The Edmonton Police Service has charged a 31-year-old city man with numerous offences including abduction in connection with the attempted kidnapping of his three-year-old daughter.

Northwest Division patrol officers responded to a residential address in that part of the city at approximately 8:45 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017, after receiving a 911 call from that address related to an alleged abduction of a young child.

Upon arrival, police learned the accused had allegedly assaulted his former common law partner, before leaving the residence with his daughter and threatening to bring harm to both he and his daughter.

The accused and his daughter were successfully located Thursday afternoon at a Spruce Grove residence. The child was released from the residence shortly thereafter, before being reunited with her mother, safe and unharmed.

The accused was subsequently arrested without incident by the Spruce Grove RCMP later Thursday evening, and handed over to EPS members, where he remains in custody today, Friday, Nov. 24, 2017.

The male has since been charged with mischief under $5000, assault, breach of conditions, abduction and uttering threats.

The investigation was brought to a successful conclusion as a result of strong collaborative work between EPS and the Spruce Grove RCMP.
