Three people will be charged after a woman was assaulted and locked in a bedroom last week in Flin Flon, Man., police say.

RCMP were notified in the early afternoon of June 2 that a 20-year-old woman had been assaulted and forcibly confined inside a home in the west side of the city, 630 kilometres northwest of Winnipeg, according to an RCMP news release.

Investigators determined an argument broke out in the residence on Hill Street, which resulted in the woman being hurt and locked up. She was eventually released from the room and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The release does not say how long she was held there.

A 29-year-old and a 26-year-old have been charged with aggravated assault and forcible confinement.

Both accused, who are from Pukatawagan, a small community located 114 kilometres northeast of Flin Flon in the Mathias Colomb First Nation, are in custody.

A 35-year-old Flin Flon woman will also be facing the same charges. She has been released from custody. Her court date is scheduled for July 14 in Flin Flon Provincial Court.

The Flin Flon RCMP and RCMP major crimes and forensic identification units are continuing to investigate.

Police are asking anyone with information or who may have witnessed the incident to contact the Flin Flon RCMP at 204-687-1423 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or submit a secure a tip online.
