Vancouver Police are investigating an attempted abduction in Stanley Park after a man grabbed a two-year-old girl.

Around 2 p.m., a family was in the Lost Lagoon area of Stanley Park when their two-year-old girl was grabbed by a man. The girl’s father confronted him, he let go of the girl and ran off.

Park Rangers assisted police in searching for the suspect, and they spotted him in the area of Denman and Robson Street. He was ultimately arrested in the 1800 block of Alberni Street, with the assistance of a citizen.

The suspect is believed to be the same man responsible for the September 4th attempted abduction of an eight-year-old girl on the sea wall at the north end of Denman Street.

The suspect, a 28-year-old man with no fixed address, remains in custody, pending further investigation.

There are no further updates to share at this time.
