Charges filed in Alexandria teen kidnapping

Three men were captured Tuesday regarding the asserted kidnapping of 15-year-old Jasmine Block toward the beginning of August. The suspects are being held in the Douglas County Jail on probable cause kidnapping, false imprisonment, and assault.

Arrested are Thomas Barker, 32, and Joshua Holby, 31, of Carlos, Minn., and Steven Powers, 20, of Mankato.

She detailed how Barker, the father of one of her friends, came to her home that night and said his son was not behaving and that he needed her help. Then he, along with Holby and Powers, then reportedly assaulted Block, threatening her with weapons and keeping her captive. Block seized the opportunity and escaped from the captivity. She eventually swam across part of Thompson Lake, where she eventually encountered a farmer who instantly recognized her from news reports.

Block was held in Barker's house against her will for several weeks, Wyffels said, often being kept in a closet. "They're all awesome people".

A Minnesota teen who disappeared last month has been found safe and authorities have arrested three people in connection with her disappearance. The two got in the farmer's auto and were headed to Elbow Lake when Block recognized one of the vehicles of the suspect. I also ask to respect jasmine myself and her sisters as we have been apart 4 weeks and its been alot so give space. "She was up so I could see her but I couldn't tell what it was", he said. On Tuesday afternoon, the three men left Block alone while they traveled to a nearby town for lunch. The girl went with Barker in a vehicle to the man's home, where she was held against her will. We think a lot of her and her family.

She knocked on the doors of several homes before swimming across the lake to find help.

Her mother, Sarah Block, said her daughter returned home after spending the day boating with neighbours.

Wyffels explained that Barker, a family acquaintance, had conned Block by saying he required help with some kind of family situation.
