Teen evades abduction attempt on Sooke Road

A 19-year-old woman is safe after running from a man on Sooke Road.

On Dec. 14 the woman was waiting at a bus stop at 4 p.m. in the 2200 block of Sooke Road in Colwood.

A grey four-door vehicle pulled up and a man described as East Indian, between 25 and 30 years old, asked if she wanted a ride. He was wearing a yellow and black hat and a grey T-shirt.

When she declined the offer he demanded she get in the vehicle. He got out of the vehicle and the teen ran to a nearby business to phone the RCMP.

“She did the right thing,” said acting Sgt. Kathy Rochlitz, of West Shore RCMP.

RCMP are trying to locate the man and are seeking any witnesses.

 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-474-2264.
