Man held hostage in Prince George escapes to rural community hall

Four men have been arrested after a man ran into a rural community hall in central B.C. covered in blood and claiming he had escaped from some kidnappers. RCMP confirm a man was held hostage for days and badly beaten inside a rural home. He managed to escape Sunday night in his stocking feet, bloody and battered. He ran to safety at a community hall nearby -- where a group of farmers were gathered for a potluck supper. Now, RCMP have arrested several suspects, including  an alleged-gangster -- who was supposed to be deported to South Africa. Daybreak's Wil Fundal explains what happened.
