Police in Canada have made a series of bizarre arrests after a car crash in a town outside Edmonton. 

Officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) – also known as the Mounties – took five people into custody suspected of kidnapping a family. 

For some reason, when the arrests were made, the individuals – a man, two women and two underage girls – were naked. 

A representative from the RCMP said the five had forced a woman, her child and her father into a BMW from their home in Laduc County. 

They are believed to have escaped from the five, and were helped by a man in a truck. 

The crash is understood to have happened when the BMW rammed the truck and ended up in a ditch. 

The family and the naked five are thought to have known each other, according to police. 

The three adults face charges of resisting arrest and kidnapping.
