Two men are in custody in Regina after a man claimed he was held against his will for an eight-hour drive from Alberta.

Regina police were called to the 1400 block of Park Street around 12:53 a.m. Thursday to the report of possible forcible confinement.

A 24-year-old man alleged he’d been held by two men armed with a gun and a Taser.

Police said the man had no visible injuries and declined help from EMS.

Officers then searched for the vehicle described by the victim and found it around 5:20 a.m. in a motel parking lot in Regina’s east end. The SWAT team and crisis negotiators were called in due to the potential threat of guns.

Two men were taken into custody around 10:05 a.m.

Police said officers did find a gun, but are investigating to determine the appropriate charges.
