The RCMP are investigating a kidnapping, injuries to a pedestrian and a home invasion they say appear to be related.
The separate incidents happened in Upper Hammonds Plains, Hammonds Plains and Lucasville on Wednesday, police said Friday in a news release.
Officers initially received a report just before 10 p.m. of the theft of a motor vehicle and kidnapping from a residence on Pockwock Road, the release said. When police arrived at the victim's home, there were no witnesses to either incident and the family did not co-operate with investigators.
A short time later, police received a report of an injured man covered in blood walking on White Hills Run. Before officers arrived on the scene, the injured man was taken to hospital by another person.
Then, shortly after 11 p.m., officers received a call about a home invasion and unlawful confinement on Lucasville Road. The caller indicated the victims had been tied up and robbed.
The suspects had departed before police arrived on the scene.
The home's owners were located nearby, but, like the first incident, they did not co-operate with police, the release said.
Investigators secured the Lucasville Road home overnight Wednesday and remained on the scene on Thursday as they conducted their investigation, which is ongoing.
