CALGARY – Police are looking for a vehicle believed to be used in a child abduction attempt in northeast Calgary on Friday.
The incident occurred on Saddlebrook Drive NE around 12:45 p.m. when a 13-year-old girl was approached by a man in a vehicle who asked for directions.
The man allegedly put his pants and underwear around his ankles and exposed himself.
The girl did not want to speak to the man and tried to leave, but the man dressed, then got out of the van and tried to force the girl to do so.
The girl kicked the man and ran. The man followed him in his van until she entered her house.
The van is described as a medium gray minivan, possibly a Honda or a Toyota.
The man was described as being in his mid to late 30s and having a heavy build. He wore a long green long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans and a blue cap.
The police patrolled the neighborhood all afternoon but could not find the van. They ask anyone with CCTV video of the van to call them at 403-266-1234. Anonymous tipsters can contact CrimeStoppers online, at 1-800-222-8477 or via the “P3 Tips” app available in the Apple Store or Google Play.
