Calgary police have charged four people, including one youth, in connection with a targeted violent abduction in the city’s southeast.
On Sept. 19, Calgary police were called to the 9300 block of Almond Crescent SE after reports of an assault in progress. According to police, witnesses reported four people beating another person before that person was dragged into an alleyway and forced into a vehicle.
The vehicle then fled the area, police said.
Calgary police officers, along with HAWCS, tracked the suspects down as they travelled southbound on Bow Bottom Trail in two different cars. They eventually stopped in the 200 block of Deerpoint Lane SE where police took three people into custody.
At that time, a 19-year-old was found and transported to hospital with injuries.
Search warrants were executed on both vehicles and police found a baseball bat, a fake gun, and zip ties, along with 17 grams of crack cocaine, 1.7 grams of methamphetamine, a scale, bear spray and other weapons.
Micias Luelseged Cherie, 18, Yusuf Mohamed Aboud, 20 and Duboul Kang Gatkouth, 21 were charged in relation to the incident. A 17-year-old was also charged, but cannot be named due to the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Calgary police are asking anyone with additional information on this incident to contact them at 403-266-1234.
