Leaf Rapids Mounties are after a man who has repeatedly tried to lure young girls into his truck.
RCMP says three times over the last six month a man has tried to get girls between the ages of seven and 11 into his pickup truck, the most recent incident was this past Saturday morning.
Police saw the girl was walking home from a friend’s house when he rolled up and asked her if she wanted a ride home. She said no, then the man grabbed her arm and tried to force her into his vehicle. The seven year old girl broke free of his grasp and ran home.
The suspect is described as a clean-shaven man with short hair and it’s believed he was wearing a black leather jacket. His pickup truck is said to have four doors and is a dark colour.
