Two people have been charged after allegedly kidnapping a man over a debt, Langley RCMP say.
On March 28, a man walked into a Willowbrook-area retail store asking for help. He had escaped after allegedly being held overnight, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The victim sustained minor injuries during his ordeal.
Police responded quickly and took two suspects into custody, Largy said.
The Serious Crime Unit investigated and has searched several vehicles since the arrests.
Largy would not say where the victim was held.
The incident is believed to have been a targeted kidnapping and related to an allegedly unpaid debt.

Justin Kooyman of Surrey has been charged with unlawful confinement and remains in custody. He will be back in court on April 19.
