A 30-year-old man has pled guilty to kidnapping a victim from a vehicle at gunpoint in Richmond.
Michael Husain appeared from custody at Vancouver Provincial Court on Wednesday, where he faced a string of charges connected to the incident in September of last year.
Husain admitted three charges, including kidnapping using a firearm, assault causing bodily harm and using a firearm to commit an indictable offence.
He will appear back in court in September, when he will be sentenced for the offences.
Three other people were charged in connection with the kidnapping - Ashley Smith, 30, Harman Parmar, 24, and a fourth person, whose name is subject to a court publication ban.
Police pursuit led to suspects being arrested
According to a Vancouver Police Department (VPD) statement last fall, the victim was assaulted, restrained and suffered significant, but non-life threatening injuries.
Following a “brief pursuit” by police, the victim was rescued by VPD officers and the four suspects were arrested in Richmond.
An investigation into home invasions, said police, led to the suspects being charged with kidnapping.
