Peel police say a possible kidnapping incident in Brampton turned out to be “a group of males attempting to simulate a movie type scene.”

On Saturday, a male teen was walking on Larkspur Road near Larkspur Public School at around 6:00 p.m., when he appeared to be taken from the street and put into a vehicle.

"Naturally, we have taken it as a very serious matter. I know there are times when individuals will go out and do their own video-type production and so on, but this was broad daylight," Wright said. "The number one priority, of course, is the victim. We would like to identify that induvial, and if anyone recognizes the individual from the images that we have, they should contact our office."

Police said security camera footage from the area showed a silver Honda Civic with four males inside following the victim as he walked along the roadway.

The surveillance video, police said, showed a silver Honda Civic following the male along the road. The vehicle then drove past the male and made a U-turn, at which point two of the four males inside got out and grabbed the male before pushing him into the truck.

The vehicle then drove past the victim, made a U-turn, mounted the curb and stopped. Two males then got out of the vehicle, grabbed the victim and threw him in the trunk of the vehicle, police said.

"The involved participants were interviewed, and police are satisfied that this was not a kidnapping incident but in fact, a group of males attempting to simulate a movie type scene," police said in a press release.

At the time, police said they were searching for four suspects. On Sunday, Peel Regional Police said the individuals involved in the incident had been identified.

Peel police launched an investigation after a video surfaced showing two suspects grabbing and throwing an unidentified male into the trunk of a vehicle in Brampton Saturday night.
