A Devon man is facing kidnapping charges after police say a woman was taken from an Evansburg home at gunpoint on Tuesday.
RCMP say they were tipped off when the suspect fled the area in a vehicle, but that vehicle was later located near Spruce Grove. RCMP in Stony Plain were notified of the pursuit and officers deployed a spike belt in the area. The vehicle was stopped by the spike belt, but that’s when police says they were engaged in a foot chase with the suspect. He was taken in to custody shortly after and a woman was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Forty-year-old Collin Hughes faces 10 charges including kidnapping, forcible confinement and assault with a weapon. He’s scheduled to appear in Stony Plain court on Wednesday. (djs/rk)
