HALIFAX - Police say they don’t know the motive behind an alleged abduction that occurred here early Sunday morning.

Just before 5 a.m., police say they received a call from a 19-year-old man inside a home in the 3000 block of MacAlpine Avenue.

The man told police he was being held against his will by several people and that one person had a handgun.

Police say the victim was eventually able to get outside where he waited for officers. Police eventually made contact with those inside the home and four people – a 63-year-old man, a 45-year-old woman and a two male youths – came out and were being questioned by investigators at Halifax police headquarters on Sunday.

Police spokesperson Sgt. Barb Saunders said on Sunday they are trying to figure out exactly what happened.

The victim remained in hospital on Sunday with non-life threatening injuries.

Police don’t believe the incident was random, and as of yet, no charges have been laid.
