Barker then drove the teen to his Carlos home and tied her with zip ties and assaulted her. Holby, who lives with Barker, also took part in the assaults.

Barker allegedly convinced the teen to get into a vehicle and then drove her to a home in Carlos, Minnesota. She made a successful escape after 29 days of being kidnapped, during this period she was threatened with the risky weapons, she also being assaulted by her three alleged kidnappers.

The teen told police Powers arrived about two weeks after she was kidnapped and also assaulted her.

But Tuesday, police say they left her alone to travel to a nearby town for lunch. Wyffels said that during the 29 days of her kidnapping the men had transported Block to several different locations, including the foreclosed home the teenager had finally escaped from in Grant County. The suspects have not said why Block was targeted, according to police. Police later arrested Barker, Joshua Holby, 31, and Steven Powers, 20, on suspicion of kidnapping, false imprisonment and assault. 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 farmer chose to help her, he said, "It was just a great feeling, (I told her) 'just get in the pickup, we're going to help you now'". Police say it is still an active investigation and they're not releasing the names of the people arrested yet. But on the 29th day, Jasmine saw an opportunity to escape.

'Please be respectful I will not be answering any messages or calls and do not post rumors Jaz and I will not tolerate that, ' she wrote.

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".

There was a $7,000 reward for information leading to Block's safe return.
