Police Department of Ontario has made an arrest of one of the two men who allegedly forced a 16-year-old child in sexual harassment and illegally detained the teenager in Nova Scotia. The suspect, David James Leblanc, was arrested on Sunday evening in Longlac, located few hours northeast of Thunder Bay.
The police indicated that it had received a tip from a civilian, who called about a man “in distress.” The officer arriving at the location identified the target as one of the suspects being chased in the highly controversial illegal confinement case. The police department’s statement mentioned that it immediately arrested the 47-year-old. The spokesperson of Ontario Provincial Police did not answer any detailed question or offer any further details regarding the arrest.
The second of the two suspects, 31-year-old William Cunningham, is still at a run from police and so far has been successful in hiding. However, the police department has a strong believe that the suspect is going towards Calgary and it is in hot pursuit. He was last recognized to be driving a grey 2003 Hyundai Elantra, having a Nova Scotia license plate of registration number, FBP-233.
These two alleged suspects are indicted in the illegal confinement and sexual abuse case, which was revealed when the culprit, 16-year-old boy, reached on to a stranger’s doorstep in Lunenburg County and narrated a horrifying story of his sufferings. He explained that he has recently escaped from a nearby house. He was reported to be wearing only a torn shirt, while having his hands completely chained.
