Farmer Finds Girl On Property - Horrified When She Tells Him What Happened To Her

A terrible story took a turn when a farmer discovered a teen girl on his property. Now, three men are under arrest.

A 15-year-old girl from Minnesota was kidnapped, sexually and physically assaulted by three men for over a month before she was able to escape. The young teen now identified as Jasmine Block, who was coerced into getting into the car of one of her attackers, was forced to swim across a lake in order to locate help. The three men, aged between 20 and 32, have been charged with kidnapping, assaulting and imprisoning the girl.

Thomas Barker, 32, supposedly lured a 15-year-old high school student from Alexandria, Minnesota, into his car before keeping her locked in a residence in Carlos for more than a month. It was at the residence that the Jasmine Block was sexually and physically assaulted by Mr. Barker, his roommate and another friend.

“Barker tied her up with zip ties and then he, his roommate and friend over the next several weeks assaulted her and threatened her with weapons,” Alexandria Police Chief Rick Wyffels confirmed. Police were able to arrest Mr. Barker, Steven Powers, 20, and Joshua Holby, 31, in relation to the girl's kidnapping after she bravely escaped her prison and managed to find help.

Ms. Block was able to escape Mr. Barker after she was left alone in the house. While it’s unclear exactly how she got out, the teenager made a run to neighboring properties in search of another person to help her. After knocking on a number of doors with no answer, Ms. Block was forced to swim across Thompson Lake in order to get help.

After crossing the lake, the young girl found herself on a farmer’s property where thankfully she was rescued and taken to safety. “When she come walking out of the grass I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, you have got to be kidding me, [I told her] just get in the pickup, we’re going to help you now,’” the unidentified rescuer commented. “When I saw her face I knew right away.” The farmer went on to state that helping the victim “was just a great feeling,”

The young girl was immediately taken to a hospital where she was treated for minor wounds. “This is an unbelievable young woman,” Chief Wyffles confessed. “She has a lot of strength. We think a lot of her and her family. They’re all amazing.”

Police believe that Ms. Block was acquainted with at least one of the suspects prior to the kidnapping. All three suspects have remained in custody while they await their charges.

In another kidnapping case, a heavily tattooed man attempted to kidnap a 12-year-old girl in Queens, claiming that it was her beauty that made him do it. The assailant supposedly approached the 12-year-old and her mother before stating in Spanish to the pre-teen that “you’re coming with me.” Luckily, the mother of the young girl was alarmed by the intimidating approach and managed to keep her young daughter away from the menacing stranger.
