Woman accused in kidnapping released on bail

SIX NATIONS/BRANTFORD – A 39-year-old Brantford woman accused of a bizarre knife-point kidnapping, assault and forcible confinement involving four Six Nations teens is free on bail.

Six Nations Police say they responded to an assault on September 11 at the Iroquois Plaza on Chiefswood Road in Ohsweken. Officers attended and were directed to 18 Oak Street where a youth was being treated by ambulance. Police were told by one of the youths that he had been abducted by a woman and two men at knife point at approximately 10:00 P.M.

The youth stated that he was asked to come outside his friend’s residence on Oak Street to talk to a friend from school and when he did, he was approached by an adult white female and two adult native males — all armed with knives.

Police say the youth reported he was forced into the back seat of a dark coloured four-door car. The youth stated that he been driven around for approximately four hours looking for a friend of his.

The abductors took the youth around Ohsweken, to Brantford and back to Ohsweken over the course of the four hours. During this time the abductor threatened to kill the youth’s family if he tried to escape or call police.

The abductors were joined by a second vehicle and a fourth person, an adult male and together they located the second youth that they were looking for, near the library, in Ohsweken.  Police say that second youth was then assaulted by one of the males and the abducted youth was also assaulted while trying to intervene. The four adults then left the scene in the two vehicles.

Jennifer Lynn McIntyre, 39, of Brantford has been charged in relation to this incident. Co-accused, 39-year-old, Jason Anthony LaForme is still at large. He is facing four counts of Assault with a Weapon, two counts of Forcible Confinement, two counts of Uttering Threats, Break and Enter, Kidnapping, Robbery, Possession of a weapon for Dangerous Purpose, and Failing to Comply with Conditions.
