5 naked people arrested after 'bizarre' car crash involving kidnapping of 3, Canada police say

Cops: Man, woman and baby were forced into car

A "very bizarre" car crash in Canada resulted in the arrests of five people who were found naked after the collision.

On Monday, officers with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police were called to the scene of a crash involving a car and pickup truck in Nisku, Alberta, according to CBC News.

At the scene, officers arrested three adults and two "youths." All five were naked when police caught them, according to the Edmonton Journal.

The crash apparently happened after police said the suspects kidnapped three people — a man, a woman and an infant — from a home and forced them into the car. The man, who was apparently locked in the car's trunk, managed to escape the moving vehicle and flag down a man driving a pickup truck.

CBC reported that the passerby managed to get all three kidnapping victims into his truck and was driving them away when he was rammed by the suspects, which forced his truck into a ditch.

None of the victims were injured in the ordeal.

The kidnapping suspects have not been named and it's unclear why they were naked at the scene of the crash. A Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigator described the incident as "very bizarre" to The Guardian.

The two underage suspects were released without charges. The three unidentified adult suspects will face charges for kidnapping and resisting arrest, according to the Edmonton Journal.

The kidnapping victims and suspects apparently know each other, police told CBC.
