Quebec police seek possible 3rd suspect in kidnapping of couple
Quebec provincial police are looking for a third possible suspect in connection with a home invasion and kidnapping in Bouchette, Que., about 115 kilometres northwest of Ottawa.
Police say an elderly couple were forced out of their cottage overnight Friday and taken to a barn in L'Isle-aux-Allumettes, about 2 ½ hours southwest of Bouchette, where they were tied up.
The suspects fled the scene in the victims' car with a stolen computer, alcohol, money and a wallet, which police say they stole during the home invasion.
The vehicle was found around 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning near Pembroke, Ont.
Police arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection to the kidnapping shortly after finding the car.
A second suspect, 17, was also arrested later in the day.
Both suspects are being held until a court appearance expected early next week.
After interviewing the couple, police say there may be a third suspect on the run.
The suspects were originally described by police as two English-speaking young men, both wearing scarves over their faces.
