Girl escapes from attempted abduction in Halifax

Halifax Regional PoliceA 10-year-old girl did exactly what any parent would hope for when she was approached by a stranger in a car on Tuesday afternoon in Halifax.

At about 4 p.m., police were called to the area of Auburn Avenue and Thornhill Drive regarding an attempted abduction. Upon arrival, police learned that a 10-year-old girl was walking home after school at about 3:45 p.m. when she was approached by a man driving a grey or silver four-door vehicle.

The driver ordered the girl to get into his vehicle. When she refused, the suspect exited his vehicle and approached the girl at which time she hit him with her school bag and ran home, reporting the incident to her parents.

Police searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion, between 35 and 45 years old, 5-foot-7, medium build with short black hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing black baggy clothing, driving a grey or silver four-door vehicle.
