FORMER AFGHANISTAN HOSTAGE CHARGED WITH SEXUAL ASSAULT

Wednesday 3rd January 2018 5:05 am

A Canadian man recently freed with his wife and young children after years of being held hostage in Afghanistan has been charged with at least a dozen offences, including sexual assault. 34 year-old Joshua Boyle was arrested in Ottawa, his lawyer, Eric Granger, told The Canadian Press. Ottawa police declined to provide any details on the case. The 15 charges against Boyle, according to court documents, include eight counts of assault, two accounts of sexual assault, two counts of unlawful confinement and one count of causing someone to "take a noxious thing, namely Trazodone," an antidepressant. There is also a charge of uttering a death threat and a charge of misleading a police officer. The purported acts allegedly occurred between Oct. 14 and Dec. 30 after Boyle returned to Canada. Boyle and his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, were taken hostage in 2012 by a Taliban-linked group while on a backpacking trip in Afghanistan. Coleman was pregnant at the time and the couple had three children in captivity.
