At approximately 2:00 p.m. on November 28, 2023, Police were called to a trailer court within Moose Jaw, following a 9-1-1 report of an individual who was being held within a residence and being prevented from leaving.
It was reported to Police that the victim was pulled out of their vehicle and taken into a nearby residence. While in the residence, the victim was threatened by approximately six of the individuals by way of violence and brandishing weapons.
