Police searching for alleged kidnapping suspect
EDMONTON – Police are asking for the public’s help in finding 25-year-old Kemol Creary, who is considered dangerous and has multiple warrants out for his arrest.
He’s accused of trying to kidnap a 23-year-old woman after she got dropped home in the area of 104 Street and 24 Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. Monday.
The woman fought back and managed to escape while the person who had driven her called police.
The 23-year-old got back in the car at that point. The two tried to get away but were followed by the suspect in a reportedly stolen vehicle.
“He pursued them and also allegedly rammed their vehicle, at times at very high speeds that were close to 140 kilometres an hour — so a very dangerous situation,” said police spokesperson Patrycia Thenu.
The woman was eventually able to flag down a marked police car after the suspect collided with a power box in the area of 80 Avenue and Gateway Boulevard.
The suspect, meanwhile, continued to the Whyte Avenue area, where a marked patrol car pulled in behind him as he was trying to park. By then, the police helicopter had also located the suspect.
He drove to 104 Street and 82 Avenue before abandoning the vehicle and taking off on foot.
Despite police’s efforts, they were unable to catch him amidst the pedestrian traffic on Whyte Avenue.
Kemol Creary, 25, has a number of warrants out for his arrest for offences that include criminal hit and run, kidnapping, assault, dangerous driving, breaching an emergency protection order, driving while suspended, criminal flight, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and breach of recognizance.
He is believed to have access to firearms and should not be approached. Anyone who sees him is asked to call police immediately.
