Suspects sought in attempted abduction in Meadowood

  • Print

A Winnipeg teen went through a terrifying experience Saturday night, and now police are looking for three men who tried to abduct her off the street.

The 17-year-old girl was walking in the area of Sterling Avenue and Homewood Drive, not far from St. Vital Centre, when a car approached her. A male passenger offered her a ride home. The offer was ignored and the girl kept walking.

The vehicle turned around further up the street and approached the victim again. The male passenger got out of the car, grabbed the girl by the arm and attempted to force her into the car. The victim managed to break free and fled the scene.

The car is described as a blue two-door Pontiac Sunfire. The suspects are described as follows:

  • The driver is described as Caucasian, approximately 20 years old, with blonde hair. He was wearing a tuque and a dark jacket.
  • The passenger is described as Caucasian, approximately 20 years old, around 6 feet tall with a skinny build and brown hair. He was wearing a black jacket.
  • No description was given for the third suspect.

If you have any information on this incident, please contact police at (204)986-2857 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
