SASKATOON – Two men accused of holding a woman at a house for four days remain in custody after appearing in Saskatoon Provincial Court Thursday.
Jesse House, 26, and Jarrod McKay, 27, are both charged with unlawful confinement, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, two counts of uttering threats of death, and possession of stolen property over $5,000.
Saskatoon Police say at about 6: 45 a.m. on Jan. 10 paramedics called them to the 3200 block of Preston Avenue South. The paramedics reported that they treated a woman with injuries consistent with an assault.
The police investigation determined that the woman was held against her will in the basement of a house since Jan. 6.
Saskatoon Police, with support from the Saskatoon Police Tactical Unit, the Guns and Gang Unit, and the Canine Unit, went to a home in the 200 block of Avenue L North. Police forced three people out of the home but McKay remained inside. The Canine Unit helped police take him into custody.
House appears again in court on Jan. 18 and McKay appears on Feb. 3.
