A la Carte Videos Inc. RE: office space used for child abduction in Etobicoke December 30th, 2010

ETOBICOKE, ON, Jan. 1 /CNW/ - A la Carte Videos was closed the week of December 26th for the holidays. While the office was closed, some electrical work was being done on the premises by contractor Frank Berti.

Frank called the owner of A la Carte Videos, who was out of town, the afternoon of December 30th at 1pm, saying a woman had come in off the street asking if she could use the space for 15 minutes to host a quick audition. The woman said her booking at the studio next door had fallen through and she had someone scheduled to meet her at that address. With reluctance the owner agreed to 15 minutes, in order to help the girl out.

Frank later explained that he was convinced that the girl was having a difficult time coordinating with people and over the course of the day the woman convinced him to let her come back a few times to conduct interviews/auditions for her Indian film.

The owners of A la Carte Videos were completely unaware that this was happening and had only ever agreed to the initial 15 minutes. The electrician says he was conned by the woman and just trying to help out a person he thought was in need.

At one in the morning, the owner of A la Carte Videos was called by police and informed that a baby had been abducted from her premises at 175 Birmingham earlier that evening.

A la Carte Videos was not connected to the woman who abducted the child, and did not realize their space was being used over the course of the day. 

A la Carte Videos is immensely relieved that the child was found by police and the perpetrator was taken into custody.
