A 38-year-old man is facing charges after an alleged gunpoint kidnapping in Delhi.

Provincial police were contacted on April 13 at around 1:20 a.m. when a man came to a Brantford hospital with injuries.

The day before, two Tillsonburg men, 29 and 45, were forcibly taken to an address in Middleton, according to police. One of them was involved in a physical altercation there, which led the suspect to flee the scene in a car.

Police have charged Richard Hutchison, 38, with a number of offences:

  • Kidnapping while using a firearm
  • Discharging a firearm in a reckless manor
  • Possession of a loaded prohibited or restricted weapon
  • Possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine

He’s being held in custody and is scheduled to appear in a Simcoe courtroom on April 16.
