Kidnapping case adjourned
Court proceedings have been adjourned again for an Innisfail man accused of breaking into the home of a woman with whom he had been romantically involved, assaulting and kidnapping her late in March.
The 55-year-old man, whose name cannot be published because it may reveal the name of his alleged victim, was arrested at the CrossIron Mills shopping centre at Balzac on March 28.
Airdrie RCMP allege that members were called to the mall after a woman passed a note to a security guard saying she had been kidnapped.
Arrested at the scene, the man remains in custody and has made numerous appearances in Airdrie provincial court, but has not yet entered a plea.
Charges include housebreaking with intent, sexual assault, choking with intent, unlawful confinement, kidnapping, threats causing death, threats causing bodily harm, possessing a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest, two counts of assaulting a peace officer and four counts of breaching a recognizance.
He is to return to court on Nov. 29.
