A man and woman from Regina are facing 46 charges after a kidnapping and robbery in the city on Jan. 7.
A 30-year-old woman told police she was held against her will, taken out of the city, restrained and robbed.
On Jan. 7, just after 7 p.m., the woman called the 9-1-1. She told dispatchers she was kidnapped at gunpoint from a residence in Regina and taken to a grid road near Francis, Sask.
She claimed to have been tied to a fence-post and abandoned by a man and woman, which were known to her.
The victim was able to free herself and flag down a motorist for help.
Police were able to clarify the details of the victim’s story and begin an investigation into the matter.
