Thompson RCMP are asking for the publics’ assistance.
Late Friday evening, Thompson R.C.M.P. received a report of a possible attempted abduction of two young girls.
The girls, ages 7 and 8, were at the Rotary Park on Deerwood Drive when a masked suspect exited a vehicle and approached them while they were on the swing set. The masked suspect then attempted to pull the girls off the swings. An unknown female that was driving by witnessed what was occurring and stopped to offer her assistance. The suspect fled the area in a pickup truck, possibly a blue Dodge Ram.
The girls were unharmed.
The witness who stopped the possible abduction attempt then helped them get their bicycles and stood watch as they safely made it back home but did not stay to speak with police. The R.C.M.P. 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.
Anyone who may have witnessed this incident, have any information, or any residence in the area of the Rotary Park on Deerwood Drive that may have video surveillance, are asked to contact Thompson R.C.M.P. at 204.677.6909.
