A 25-year-old Langley woman has been charged with kidnapping and unlawful confinement after a man ran into a store calling for help last month.

On March 28, Langley RCMP were called to a big box store on 64 Avenue, after a man ran inside, saying he had been kidnapped and needed help.

Two suspects were arrested a short time later by members of the general duty section of the Langley RCMP, said spokesperson, Cpl. Holly Largy.

The victim sustained minor injuries during his ordeal, said police.

The Langley RCMP Serious Crime Unit took over the investigation. In the following days several search warrants were executed.

The incident is believed to have been targeted and related to an alleged unpaid debt.

Alyssa Cappon is charged with one count each of unlawful confinement, kidnapping and assault.  She has been released from custody and will be back in court on April 22.

Justin Kooyman, 37, of Surrey, is charged with one count of unlawful confinement.  He has been remanded in custody and will be back in court on April 19.
