Mounties in Barriere have released a composite sketch of a suspect in a reported abduction attempt in the community 45 minutes north of Kamloops.
A 10-year-old girl told police a man tried to grab her by her wrist on Friday, Nov. 22, at about 3:30 p.m. as she walked in the area of Dunn Lake Road and Barriere Town Road.
“Our investigators are turning to the public in an effort to further advance their ongoing investigation,” Barriere RCMP Cpl. Rob Welsman said. “Since the incident, a specially trained forensic artist met with the victim in order to create a composite sketch of the unknown man.”
The man depicted in the composite drawing has been described to police as being approximately 40 years of age, standing 5-foot-7 and having short, brown hair, hazel eyes and a brown full beard, about four inches or more in length and shaped to a point at the end.
Anybody who can identify the man in the forensic sketch and anyone with information on the reported abduction attempt is asked to call Barriere RCMP at 250-672-9918 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
