Portage man accused of kidnapping, assaulting teen
A 51-year-old man in Portage la Prairie, Man., is being accused of kidnapping and assaulting a 14-year-old boy earlier this month.
RCMP say the teen was forcibly taken from his home in Portage at around 5 p.m. CT on Nov. 16.
Then on Saturday morning, eight days after the alleged attack, police raided a home on the 600 block of Spruce Bay in Portage la Prairie.
The man was arrested and charged with break and enter, kidnapping, unlawful confinement, assault, and two counts of uttering threats, RCMP said in a release Monday.
He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in provincial court in Portage on Dec. 19.
