Kamloops cops look for creepy couple after attempted abduction
Kamloops police are looking for a creepy couple suspected of trying to kidnap a woman in broad daylight on the North Shore yesterday (June 25).
The 25-year-old woman called Mounties at about 2:30 p.m. to report she'd been walking in the 1200-block of 12th Street when a white vehicle approached her.
Police believe the female passenger of the car asked the woman to get in. When she refused, the male driver is alleged to have left the vehicle and grabbed the woman, pulling her toward the vehicle.
She told police she broke free, was grabbed again and escaped a second time.
The woman said she then ran to safety.
Initial reports indicated the female passenger in the vehicle wanted to "make out" with the would-be victim.
The vehicle is described as a white, mid-90s four-door sedan.
The female passenger is a white woman in her late 30s to early 40s, heavy-set with brown hair and multi-colour highlights, while the male driver is described as a white man in his early 40s, heavy-set with bright blue eyes and a stubbly face.
Anyone with information can call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
