RCMP are crediting a woman for thwarting an abduction attempt in Thompson -- and they'd like her to come forward as a witness.
A masked suspect approached two girls Friday evening, aged seven and eight, on a swing set and tried to pull the two off the swings, RCMP report.
A woman, driving by Deerwood Park, saw a masked man before pulling over to check what was wrong. The suspect saw her and fled, taking off in a pick-up truck, possibly a blue Dodge Ram.
"The witness who stopped the possible abduction attempt then helped them (the girls) get their bicycles and stood watch as they safely made it back home," an RCMP statement said. But the woman didn't stay to speak with police.
The girls were unharmed.
"The RCMP would like to speak with this female witness. It is believed that she was driving a dark coloured Jeep and had a dog with her," RCMP said.
Anyone else who saw the attempted abduction is also asked to call the RCMP in Thompson.
