Vancouver Police have identified the suspect and vehicle in last Wednesday’s attempted child abduction in South Vancouver and are making a plea for additional dash-cam footage from the area at the time of the incident.
“The man driving the vehicle saw the news coverage about the attempted abduction and met and spoke with our detectives,” says Constable Jason Doucette, VPD. “After a careful review of the information available, investigators have deemed him as not posing a threat to public safety. He was released while investigators continue to gather additional information.”
A 13-year-old girl was approached by the man on Wednesday, October 14. She was walking home and was near Kerr Street and South East Marine Drive when she was followed by a man driving a black, four-door, Audi A4. The driver allegedly stopped and told the girl to get into his vehicle.
Investigators are again asking for witnesses to come forward and for dash-cam footage from anyone who may have been near Kerr Street and South East Marine Drive on Wednesday between 3 and 4:30 p.m. They would also like to hear from anyone near the pier at the south-end of Kerr Street during the same time who may have seen the Audi A4 and its driver.
Anyone with information and dash-cam footage is asked to call detectives at 604-717-0603 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-822-8477.
