The Regina Police Service is asking for information from the public that could assist in an investigation into a kidnapping that occurred at approximately 12:40 p.m. on June 6, 2019, in the area of 1000 block Elphinstone Street in Regina.
On Thursday, June 6, 2019, at approximately 8:00 p.m., it was reported to police that in the 1000 block Elphinstone St, a 17 year-old male was forced at gunpoint, by a male and female suspect, into the suspects’ vehicle. Minutes later, a second male victim was also kidnapped in the same manner by the same suspects. The suspects continued to drive outside of the city, taking the two victims to an unknown rural area. It is believed the suspects then drove to a town north of Regina where the victims were able to escape from their assailants.
Police have not been able to identify or speak with the second victim involved in the abduction. As there are concerns for his safety and well-being, police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating and identifying him. He is described as an Indigenous male, 15-17 years old, long black hair, and a scar on his left eyebrow. He was wearing grey sweats, a navy blue t-shirt, Nike shoes, a black and red “We the North” Raptors ball hat, and three wrist bands. His name may be Joel or Joelle.
The male suspect was described as Caucasian, 40-50 years old, black and grey hair, a short trimmed beard, brown eyes, weighing around 280 lbs., 6’0” tall, and a wrinkly face with a mark or scar under his left eye. He was wearing a dark green collared shirt. He spoke with a deep voice.
The female suspect was described as Caucasian, 40-50 years old, shoulder length silver and blond hair, hazel eyes, and a large freckle on her right jaw line. She was wearing a baggy multi-coloured pink and purple flowered shirt and blue shorts.
The suspects’ vehicle was described as a mid-2000 dark blue 4-door sedan.
Anyone who has information that could assist in this investigation is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their assistance in this matter.
