BRANTFORD – Four Six Nations youth were victims of a series of illegalities that began earlier this month with Brantford resident Jennifer McIntyre facing a string of charges.
The four teens were each allegedly approached and threatened individually at knife point by a group of four men — two native and two non-native — and McIntyre; with one 17-year-old being kidnapped and driven throughout Six Nations and Brantford in search of a 15-year-old who was later beaten and found at the Ohsweken Plaza early Monday morning.
Brantford court documents show that McIntyre has been charged with possession of a dangerous weapon, three counts of assault with a weapon, uttering threats, kidnapping, breaking and entering with contempt, two counts of forcible confinement and robbery.
It has been speculated that the motivation for these accounts may have been in relation to allegations against two Six Nations teens that were allegedly invited to a Brantford home where jewelry went missing. The identities of the four other men beyond Jay LaForme/Parker have not been released.
McIntyre’s bail court hearing proceeded on Friday, September 15, and is set to continue on Wednesday September 20.
