Abbotsford: On Sunday, September 18, 2016, at 10:00 PM, a 33-year-old woman was walking in the area of Marshall and McCallum Roads when a man in a blue van asked her if she wanted a ride. The woman declined and continued walking. The man in the blue van drove by her a second time and again offered her a ride, which she again declined.

In the area of Cherry Street and Marshall Road, she felt a hand grab her upper arm.  She was able to break free from the grasp of the suspect and run toward a nearby residence to safety.

The suspect is described as a clean-shaven, Caucasian male in his early 20’s with shoulder-length, wavy brown hair.  He had a slim build and was wearing a dark-coloured baseball cap.

The suspect vehicle is described a dark-blue mini-van with rounded corners similar to a Pontiac Montana.
