Jasmine Block, Kidnapped Minnesota Teen, Found After Swimming Across Lake To Freedom

She is believed to have been kidnapped by an acquaintance of hers who was accompanied by two other men.

She broke away, knocking on several doors before swimming across part of the lake to locate a residence where help could be found. The teen is understood to have also been sexually assaulted.

But police said the men left her at the lake home while they went for lunch. When the two arrived at Barker's residence, authorities allege he restrained the teen with zip ties, assaulted her and threatened her with weapons.

For almost a month, police say the teen endured sexual assault and constant threats with a weapon.

Chief Wyffels said this was the first time in 29 days she had the opportunity to escape.

Jasmine Block, 15, of Alexandria, Minn., made it safely across the lake before running onto a property where she received help, CBS Minnesota reported.

Three men are under arrest and will be charged this week in the abduction. On the way, Chief Wyffels says Block recognized one of the vehicles and men involved. She identified herself as Jasmine Block to the man, but Wyffels said the man already knew who she was because her disappearance was in the news.

"The three abductors will have to be dealt with, but the best case scenario is that she is alive and we will let her recuperate, we will celebrate, and we will envelop her with our love from this community", Mayor Carlson said. "They're all awesome people".

The 32-year-old knew Block and approached her outside her home in the 200 block of McKay Avenue N. around 11 p.m. on August 8 "on the pretense that he needed help with a situation". She concurred, got in his vehicle and they headed to his home. When she returned, the girl was no where to be found, but her cellphone was left behind.
