Four suspects face forced confinement charges

A Lloydminster RCMP investigation dating back to November, 2022 will see four suspects in court this month.

On Nov. 19, 2022, Lloydminster RCMP got a report of an aggravated assault and forcible confinement at a home in the city. The Lloydminster RCMP General Investigation Section (GIS) subsequently took the lead in the investigation.

On Nov. 25, 2022, a search warrant was executed at a home which resulted in the seizure of three guns, a home-made firearm silencer, ammunition, multiple other weapons and restraints.

Investigators are not identifying the victim at this time and indicate there is no danger to the public as the incident was deemed to be a pre-mediated and targeted attack.
