Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in a recent child abduction and sexual assault in west Edmonton.
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, an eight-year-old female was walking home from a residence in the area of 144 Street and 110 Avenue at approximately 5:30 p.m. when she was approached by a vehicle. The male driver pulled her into the vehicle, sexually assaulted her and dropped her off nearby.
The girl immediately reported the incident to her parents, who were looking for her at the time. They subsequently contacted police. EMS also attended and transported the child to hospital where she was treated and then released.
The suspect is described as a light skinned male in his late 20s to mid 30s with medium to short brown hair and facial hair. The male was also reportedly wearing faded light brown pants at the time.
The suspect’s vehicle is described as a white four-door mid-sized car or SUV.
Police continue to search for the suspect and are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident, suspect or vehicle in the McQueen neighbourhood between 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. yesterday to contact police. Investigators are also asking any vehicle owners in the area with dash cam footage that was active during this time to review their video and contact police if they see a vehicle that matches the description.
Detectives do not believe the suspect and the child were known to one another.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
