Man wanted for alleged kidnapping in Edmonton arrested in Calgary
EDMONTON – A man wanted for an alleged kidnapping in south Edmonton early Monday morning was arrested in Calgary Thursday afternoon.
The Calgary Police Service arrested Kemol Delano Creary at a bus stop after a series of violent events over the past few days.
Creary was initially wanted on multiple warrants after allegedly attempting to kidnap a 23-year-old woman after she was dropped off at home in the area of 104 Street and 24 Avenue just before 2:30 a.m. Monday.
The Edmonton Police Service says the 25-year-old man allegedly went to Calgary in a stolen vehicle on Wednesday.
Police say Creary reportedly showed up at a Calgary woman’s home with a weapon and demanded she make contact with the Edmonton woman he allegedly tried to kidnap earlier this week.
It’s not known if the two women are known to each other.
Police say Creary was apparently trying to get the woman to arrange a meeting with the 23-year-old Edmonton woman, who declined the offer.
On Thursday, police say the Calgary woman was able to once again contact the Edmonton woman to let her know Creary allegedly had a weapon and was looking for her. The Edmonton woman then called police.
Calgary Police were able to locate and arrest Creary in the area of Centre Street and Blackthorn Road around 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
Creary is now facing numerous charges from both the Calgary and Edmonton Police Services including:
- Possession over $5,000
