Suspect Kidnapper Dons the Garb of Police to Lure the Teenage victim

.

The John Baumgarte, 56, arrested in the case of the kidnapping of the 16-year-old Alberta girl is suspected to have been wearing a police uniform when he lured the teenager into his trap. He is now facing charges of personating a police officer, kidnapping with a firearm, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault and uttering a threat.

On Thursday night the girl had left her home in the town of Penhold to pick up some orange juice at a nearby store. She mistook the suspect for a policeman and walked into his trap.

"He had red and blue flashing lights. He had some clothing that appeared convincing enough to the victim that he was police officer," said RCMP Sergeant Patrick Webb.

According to the police and the family, the girl was held and sexually assaulted for two days and forced to beg for her life.

However she managed to escape on Saturday night and called up her father from the Red Deer mall where she'd turned up after 46 hours.

Around noon, on Sunday, police arrested John who now faces five charges, and is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Tuesday.
