Victoria police have arrested six men from Calgary on charges of kidnapping and assault with a weapon after a victim was taken from his home in Oaklands on Monday night.

Officers were called shortly before 11 p.m. on September 7 for a report of a loud domestic disturbance at a multi-unit residential building in the 1300-block of Hillside Avenue.

On scene officers were told that a man had been assaulted with a weapon and kidnapped from a suite in the building by six suspects.

The six men took the victim outside of Victoria in a vehicle. En route, they continued to assault the victim with weapons.

Eventually, the suspects stopped the vehicle outside of Victoria and the victim was able to escape.

He made his way to a safe location and contacted police. The victim was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
