Abducted for stealing two luxury watches

A 32-year-old man was abducted from the parking lot of a business located on boulevard des Sources and rue De Salaberry, in Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Monday evening.

Radio-Canada has learned that a man 32-year-old may have been kidnapped last night in the West Island of Montreal for the theft of two luxury Rolex brand watches.

According to the findings of the police, the alleged thief was traced by the owner of the luxury watches when he left a business in Dollard-des-Ormeaux.

Once in the parking lot, three individuals allegedly forced him to climb at knifepoint into a rented Hyundai vehicle. Witnesses called 911 around 6:15 p.m.

Commercial surveillance cameras would have quickly identified the vehicle and the number of suspects involved in the kidnapping.

An hour and a half later, around 8 p.m. h15, the group of assailants would then have been chased by the SPVM near the Côte-Vertu sector and Highway 15.

SPVM officers found one of the two vehicles involved in the kidnapping in Saint-Laurent. The occupants fled on foot.

According to our information, the police were forced to call off the high-speed car chase in an urban environment. Two of the three suspects would have taken the opportunity to abandon their vehicle in order to run away from the police on Highway 15.

The third member of the group, a 25-year-old man, was arrested for questioning at the investigation center. Known to the police for various criminal offences, he allegedly cooperated little with the investigators.

As for the victim of the kidnapping, she was able to free herself from her captors at the time of abandonment of the vehicle. She was treated by Urgence-Santé for stabbing lacerations.

Our police sources tell us that, although she has no criminal history at the courthouse, it would be related to criminal activities in terms of fraud. According to the manufacturer's list prices, the price range per unit for a Rolex sold worldwide is between $7,000 and $50,000 in Canadian currency.

No charges have been laid in this kidnapping case at the time of this writing.
