  • Print

Winnipeg Police are searching for a suspect following an attempted child abduction in Fort Rouge.

Just before 9 a.m. on Wed., March 19, officers responded to an attempted abduction in the area of Arbuthnot Street and Warsaw Avenue. The intersection is down the block from both Earl Grey School and École LaVérendrye School.

An 11-year-old girl was on her way to school when a man grabbed her arm and attempted to pull her down Arbuthnot Street. The suspect never spoke to the victim, but she was able to break free and run home.

The victim described the suspect as male, Caucasian, between 50 and 60 years old, short with a small build and a mole on his face. He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, a maroon toque with a pompom, and a scarf around his mouth.

Members of the Child Abuse Unit are still investigating and anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 204-986-3296 or Crime Stoppers 204-786-TIPS (8477).
