St. Thomas Police are asking for the public’s help after an attempted abduction Saturday on Owaissa Street.

Two 8-year-old girls were approached by a man in an older model full sized red pickup truck.

The suspect asked the girls if they would like to go for a ride and when they refused, he attempted to pull them inside the truck.

The girls fled to a nearby home and called police.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 40′s, approximately 5’10 with black curly hair and a beard.

He was wearing a black three-quarter length coat at the time.

Contact St. Thomas Police at 519-631-1364 if you have any information.
