Three people are facing charges after a woman was assaulted, confined and robbed last week.

Medicine Hat Police say it happened last Wednesday night when a female was assaulted at a residence and then held against her will.

The Major Crimes Unit says an attempt was also made to extort money from the victim before she escaped the following morning.

36 year old Amanda Kaye, 53 year old Theresa Babitzke, and 29 year old Matthew Babitzke all face numerous charges relating to the incident.

All three accused will appear in Medicine Hat Court Tuesday (Oct 30) morning.
