Man charged after 2 women escape from motorhome in B.C. Interior

A 43-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder and three other offences after two women were held captive in a motorhome in the B.C. Interior in August.

RCMP in the village of Valemount, south of Prince George near the Alberta border, first learned of the incident Aug. 23 when someone reported seeing a woman running down the road with her hands tied behind her back.

Const. Rob Roffle told CBC News that led to the discovery of a second woman whose hands were tied with an electrical cord inside a motorhome parked just outside the village.

Police arrested Timothy Shawn Preddy, 43, at the scene and took the two women, aged 45 and 60, to the hospital in Prince George.

Preddy has been charged with attempted murder, unlawful confinement, assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.

Roffle said Preddy knew the victims well and had been in a relationship with the 45-year-old woman.

The group had travelled together from Alberta and had been living in the motorhome in the area between Jasper, Alta., and Prince George for at least three weeks.

Police suspect the women's confinements may have been drug-related.

Preddy is scheduled to appear in court in Prince George in October.
Why is letting them escape and offence?
