Abbotsford Police are investigating an attempted abduction of 16-year-old girl who was waiting for her bus.
Constable Ian MacDonald says it happened around 5pm yesterday at stop on Old Yale Road near Mitchell Street.
“He ended up parking close by and approaching the victim, he tried to entice her into the van by offering her liquor, and she resisted.”
He then tried to pull the girl by the arm and force her into the vehicle.
A good Samaritan stepped in and the suspect left.
He is described as Caucasian, in his 20’s, 5’10 with a medium build.
He was wearing all black, a baseball cap and work boots.
MacDonald says he had a tear drop tattoo under one of his eyes.
Police are asking the public to lookout for the vehicle.
“An early 2000 vintage either burgundy or dark red van, possibly a Ford Winstar or Dodge Caravan.”
MacDonald is also asking for the passerby who helped the girl to come forward.
