A man co-accused of forcible confinement, robbery and extortion had his case adjourned to the spring.
Jason Palsich will appear in Lloydminster Provincial Court on May 3. Both he and Luke Dean are facing charges of forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, robbery with a weapon and extortion.
The two were arrested and charged following a house search in Lloydminster last August. According to Lloydminster RCMP, the two men were involved in an ongoing investigation where a victim was allegedly assaulted and confined to the house before being able to flee and contact police.
Dean is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Lloydminster on April 22. The hearing will determine whether there is enough evidence to head to trial.
The allegations against the individuals have not been proven in court.
