26-year old Bishop Realff is scheduled to go to trial on December 10th.
Realff is facing one count each of assault with a weapon, unlawful confinement and extortion.
The charges are in connection with an incident back in May.
100 Mile House RCMP say a tow truck traveled from Williams Lake to assist with retrieving a vehicle that had become stuck on a rural road.
The driver told police that he picked the client up to travel to the area where the vehicle was, and that the suspect produced a knife and started making demands, and holding him against his will for around 45 minutes.
Police say the victim was eventually able to escape from the suspect without injury and leave the area safely in the tow truck.
The suspect was then arrested the following day in Kamloops.
