One of two Nova Scotia men accused of forcibly confining and sexually assaulting a teenage boy has been arrested in northwestern Ontario.
Ontario Provincial Police said David James Leblanc was arrested Monday morning when officers responded to reports of a man in distress near Longlac, 260 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay.
A second suspect, William Cunningham, is still at large.
Police say the two men held a 16-year-old boy in a Nova Scotia home for about two weeks.
The teen had been chained but managed to escape and seek help from a neighbour.
