Several people have been charged after a man was kidnapped from his rural Manitoba home at gunpoint, robbed, and beaten while being taken on a terrifying, hours-long tour of Winnipeg.

The 41-year-old victim told investigators it all started when a man and woman broke into his home in Riverton, Man., roughly 124 km north of Winnipeg, the night of Sept. 19.

Armed with a gun and a knife, the pair robbed the man of his cell phone, cash, and half-ton truck, forcing him to accompany them in the truck to Winnipeg.

Police say he was assaulted and threatened during the drive to the city.

When they arrived in Winnipeg police say the man was then driven to numerous locations throughout the city, at one point being taken to a home where a handgun was held to his head and threats were made to kill him.

Police say the man was beaten further and tied up before his captors again started driving him around the city.

The man was eventually able to escape around 1:30 p.m. the following day, calling police from a business near Dufferin Avenue and McGregor Street.

The man sustained extensive injuries to his face and head, say police.
