October 22, 2019

Lethbridge Police are investigating after a young boy reported that a male attempted to abduct him.

On October 14, a 7-year-old girl claimed that a male attempted to abduct her on two separate occasions — one which is said to have occurred on Mt. Sunburst Way.

On Monday afternoon, at approximately 4:30 p.m police responded to a home on Mt Sunburst Place West. A 9-year-old boy says that a male followed him into an alley, and grabbed him by the hand. The boy was able to pull away, and run home. With assistance of a K-9 unit, police extensively searched the area with negative results.

The boy described the suspect as male, wearing a  black hoodie, black pants and possibly had a skull tattoo on his left arm.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 403-328-4444 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
