As an ongoing investigation into an alleged abduction of a child in the B.C. Interior continues on, B.C. RCMP are asking the public for help in identifying the male suspect.
Around 3:30 p.m. on November 22, an unknown man allegedly grabbed the wrist of a 10-year-old female child as she was walking in the area of Dunn Lake Road and Barriere Town Road in Barriere, B.C., which is located 66 kilometres north of Kamloops.
However, she fought back, managed to break free from his grasp, and ran away from him.
Today (November 27), RCMP issued the above composite sketch drawn by a forensic artist who met with the victim.
The male suspect is described as being about 40 years old and is about 170 centimetres (five-feet, seven-inches) tall. He has hazel eyes, short brown hair, and a full brown beard that is about 10 centimetres (four inches) or more long shaped to a point at the end.
He was described as wearing a grey long-sleeve shirt with black lettering and black pants.
Anyone who can identify this male or who has information relevant to this investigation is asked to contact the Barriere RCMP non-emergency line at 250-672-9918 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
