LUNENBURG, N.S. – The RCMP say two men wanted after a 16-year-old boy was allegedly sexually assaulted and forcibly confined in southwestern Nova Scotia could be in separate vehicles.
The Mounties are appealing for the public’s help after a Lunenburg County woman reported that a teen arrived at her doorstep Monday evening chained at his wrists and ankles.
The woman said the youth was in his bare feet at the time and wearing only a hooded sweatshirt.
RCMP Sgt. Allain Leblanc says the public should be on the lookout for two vehicles.
Leblanc says one is a grey 2003 Hyundai Elantra with a Nova Scotia licence plate of FBP 233.
He says the second is a brown 2002 Chevrolet Venture van with a Nova Scotia licence plate of EZG 581.
Investigators say they are looking for 47-year-old David James Leblanc and 31-year-old Wayne Alan Cunningham, who they have charged with forcible confinement and sexual assault.
Leblanc says the boy was taken to hospital and is safe, but he wouldn’t elaborate.
