Arrested For Kidnapping Teen, Assaulting Her For 29 Days

Her mother told police that Jasmine came home early with a migraine, and was resting on the couch when her mother went out to attend to a family emergency.

The 32-year-old knew Block and approached her outside her home in the 200 block of McKay Avenue N. around 11 p.m. on August 8 "on the pretense that he needed help with a situation".

But police said the men left her at the lake home while they went for lunch.

The 31-year-old likewise struck Block, as did the 20-year-old, who touched base around two weeks into the kidnapping. "Barker tied her up with zip-ties and then he, his roommate and a friend repeatedly assaulted Miss Block and threatened her with weapons". Wyffles said Barker is an acquaintance of the teen's family.

He added: "It was just a great feeling, [I told her] 'just get in the pickup, we're going to help you now'".

A Minnesota teenager escaped her captors after she was abducted, sexually assaulted and held against her will for 29 days, according to police. She then escaped when they left her alone.

Officials said she then swam across Thompson Lake. The #teenager then ran to the farmer's vehicle and explained what had happened, asking him to call 911.

Following her rescue, the 15-year-old girl was taken to Douglas County Hospital before being reunited with her family reported KARE.

As reported by CBS Local, the farmer who helped Block, and who wished to remain anonymous, said he was heading to work Tuesday, but realized he had forgotten something.

"We have a whole lot of pieces to put together", Wyffels said.

The teen says she was held captive at Barker's residence in Carlos for most of the time she was missing, and that he tried to drown her in a bath tub one time but was unable to finish the job as he suffers from cerebral palsy and lacks strength. Her mom was strong for this whole time and consistent and never gave up. On behalf of the police department, all of the emergency response people, it's an fantastic story when you have something like this happen.

The three men who allegedly kidnapped the teen - Thomas Barker, Joshua Holby, and Steven Powers - have been arrested by the police.

Police eventually tracked down the other two suspects after a state trooper spotted their auto outside a home.

Authorities do not believe there is any ongoing threat to the public.
