Parents of man accused of attacking girl say they have moved because of threats

EDMONTON — The parents of a man accused of viciously attacking a six-year-old girl on an Alberta reserve say they have been forced to move because of threats of violence.

Ramona and James Strong say in a statement that RCMP have helped move them and their other eight children to an undisclosed location.

Their 21-year-old son, James Clifford Paul, faces charges of attempted murder, aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping.

The girl was found battered and near death outdoors on the Paul First Nation near Duffield, west of Edmonton, a few days before Christmas.

Media reports have said she was naked in the snow in the woods.

The Strongs say they are shocked and mortified by what happened to the little girl and are praying for her recovery.
