  • 2 women forcibly confined in a van, one of them assaulted & robbed of her money

On Wednesday, just before noon, the Delta Police was dispatched to the area of Hwy 17 and Ladner Trunk Road for a report of a distraught person. 

Upon arrival, officers learned that a 21-year-old woman had been assaulted, robbed of her money, and forcibly confined in a U-Haul van.  She had escaped from the vehicle near Hwy 17 and Ladner Trunk Road. Officers also learned that another woman was forcibly confined in the van.  It was determined early in the investigation that all of the occupants knew each other. 

Police took immediate action to locate the other remaining victim who was in the U-Haul van and allegedly being forcibly confined by a male and female suspect. The investigation resulted in the Langley RCMP locating the van in the Aldergrove area and arresting two occupants. The second victim was located unharmed.

The investigation is ongoing. The two suspects who have been arrested remain in custody, awaiting their first court appearance.
