OTTAWA – Ottawa police say they’ve arrested a woman in connection to a Toronto kidnapping investigation.

Elanna Marki, 40, had been wanted in an alleged kidnapping and aggravated assault incident in December, and Toronto police had said she was believed to be in Ottawa.

It’s alleged a woman was held captive in two apartments in east-end Toronto and violently assaulted by a man and three women with a variety of weapons over several days.

Toronto police have said the victim was choked with a seatbelt as she was driven to a park on Dec. 21, where she managed to escape and sought help from a passerby.

Two other women have been arrested in connection with the case and face charges including assault with a weapon, forcible confinement and kidnapping.

John Brown, 44, of Pickering is also wanted in the investigation but police say he was not apprehended along with Marki.
