A group of five who seized three people and crashed their vehicle believed they were escaping the end of the world and faced imminent danger
Three people who were arrested naked by Canadian police after abduct their neighbours and disintegrating their auto into another vehicle were Jehovah’s Eyewitness who believed that they were escaping the end of the world, according to court documents.
In a plea document obtained by the Canadian Press, two women and a man admitted to kidnapping three beings in the western province of Alberta last year, which drew a degree of clarity to the bizarre incident last November. One of the status of women too pleaded guilty to dangerous driving.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police launched their investigation after they were called to the scene of a gondola crash in an industrial park in Nisku, south of Edmonton.
They arrived to find a lily-white BMW that had crashed with a truck; inside were five people- four of them naked- despite the centimetres of snowfall on the field and temperatures that levitated around -1 0C( 14 F ).
According to the plea document, the occurrence had begun several days earlier, when one of the women took her her two teenage daughters to visit her 27 -year old-fashioned nephew and his 30 -year old-time bride, who lived in Leduc, Alberta.
After three days at the chamber of representatives- during which the group barely ate- they came to believe that they had lived through the Great Tribulation, a period of suffering which some evangelical Christians believe heralds the second coming.
Believing they were in imminent danger, the group absconded the chamber of representatives- but in their rapidity , none of their own families- except the mother- managed to get dressed, the document says.
” Four who is currently naked were changing but they had to leave right away because it was unsafe, so they left without robes ,” the plea document said.
The group piled into a BMW SUV- which the mother drove through the garage door to make their escape- but then decided they needed to rescue the neighbours.
They thrust a man into the trunk of their vehicle and drew his adult daughter and her baby climbing into the back seat.” They did so because they believed that they were in danger, either from bad or wicked people outside or from beasts ,” says the guilty plea.
The BMW then hastened down the highway, detonation through a red light as its occupants sung “Jehovah” over and over.
According to the document, the three neighbours managed to escape when the SUV slowed down and pennant down a come truck.
” It’s the middle-of-the-road of the winter and parties run away with no shoes on – you stop be used to help ,” Derek Scott, the truck’s driver, told CTV News last year.
The neighbours clambered aboard the truck- but their relief was short-lived: the SUV rammed Scott’s truck, and both vehicles finished in a snow-filled ditch.
When police responded to the accident, they faced a group who” displayed extreme forte” and refused to leave the vehicle. According to the court document, one of the teenages conceive the officers were” were ogres who would kill them “.
Police eventually resorted to using a combination of pepper spay and tasers to suppress and arrest the passengers.
At the time, police supposed doses or booze might have been a factor in the incident. The parent of the two teens- who wasn’t present during the incident- told sleuths that he dreads the group might have ate a hallucinogenic tea.
But according to the Canadian Press, the plea document clears no mention of drugs or alcohol.
The two girls who were present during the abduction were not charged.
