NORTH GLENGARRY — A man and a woman from Cornwall have been charged after a home invasion at the North Glengarry residence of a man who was held against his will and then left in the bed of a pickup truck a short distance away.
“He may have been bound; he was definitely taken against his will,” says SD&G OPP Const. Tylor Copeland of the July 11 incident that unfolded sometime in the hours before a passerby discovered the victim in the discarded vehicle shortly before 6 a.m.
Police say two individuals wearing disguises broke into the Kenyon Concession Rd. 8 home, where they confronted the resident and stole items. “I think that all of them were known to each other to some degree,” Copeland offered.
The culprits fled in the truck and took the man with them, before leaving the vehicle by the side of the road with the victim inside. Police assume the duo changed vehicles to get away at that point.
In the ensuing days, police arrested Cornwall residents Wanda Ashford (July 11) and Scott Julien (July 12).
The SD&G OPP detachment reports that Ashford, 23, is charged with: Robbery with intent; Break and enter; Fail to comply with conditions of a recognizance; and Conspiracy to commit indictable offence.
The detachment reports that Julien, 30, is charged with: Robbery with weapon; Disguise with intent; Forcible confinement; Possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose; Break and enter; and two counts of Fail to comply with conditions of a probation order.
Both accused were held in custody pending a bail hearing at Cornwall Court.
