LANGLEY: Langley RCMP is seeking the assistance of the public to identify a suspect in an attempted abduction that took place this morning in Langley City.
At approximately 9:00 a.m., a Langley father and his two year old son entered the playground area of Douglas Park in the 20600 block of Douglas Crescent. While the father was turned away to put down his son’s helmet and bike, an unknown male picked the child up in his arms. When the father saw his son in the suspect’s arms, he yelled loudly and the suspect immediately dropped the child.
The suspect ran from the park with the father following close behind. Unfortunately, the suspect entered a vehicle, a dark green van or SUV with a rear tinted window and sped off southbound on 206 Street.
The suspect is described as possibly East Indian or Hispanic, average build to slightly husky, 5’9 to 5’11 with dark brown hair, wearing a white hat and a dark shirt.
