  • Print

Police released a composite sketch of a suspect today in the attempted abduction of 17 year old girl near the St. Vital Centre.

The girl was walking in the area of Sterling Avenue and Homewood Drive, not far from Bishop Grandin and the Home Depot on the night of March 29. The location is also across from the St. Vital Centre, one of the largest malls in the city and a popular teen hangout.

It was about 10 p.m. that night when a car with three males pulled up beside the teenager and the driver offered her a ride home. She ignored him, but one of the passengers jumped out and grabbed her by the arm and pulled her toward the car. She struggled and got away.

The vehicle was described as a blue two-door Pontiac Sunfire.

In descriptions also released today the males are described as:

Suspect #1: Caucasian male, approximately 20 years, with blonde hair. He was wearing a toque and a dark jacket.

Suspect #2 (passenger): Caucasian male, approximately 20 years, 5-feet-10 to 6-feet tall with a skinny build and short hair. He was wearing a dark jacket and jeans.

There is no description of the third suspect.

This investigation is continuing.
