Kidnap ‘Victim’ Charged In Ongoing OPP Investigation

Incident began in Orillia, ended in Barrie

Interesting call for the OPP early Thursday morning. A witness thought it looked like his friend was being abducted by two others in Orillia – forced into a pick-up truck around 1:30. He told police he followed the truck to Barrie. When police found it in the Hanmer St. area, just the supposed victim was inside with injuries. The others were found at hospital being treated for injuries. For now, only the so-called victim, a 24-year-old Orillia man, has been charged as police sort through what exactly happened. He faces two counts of Assault with a Weapon, one of Assault.
