Edmonton police are looking for four individuals in an abduction that is alleged to have occurred just before 10:00 a.m. on Thursday.
Police said they received several reports of a dispute near 75th Avenue and 120th Street that resulted in a young, caucasian woman being assaulted.
It is believed that the four suspects, led by a white male believed to be in his late 20s, then abducted the woman using her own car — a dark grey Dodge Dart with Alberta licence plate number HAH 030.
The back bumper of the car is taped up and should be distinctive, said police.
They are now looking for four people they believe to be involved:
- a white male described to be in his late 20s, standing approximately five feet six inches tall with an average build.
- a 25-year-old white woman with shoulder-length brown hair, thought to be about five feet 10 inches tall with a thin build. The woman was reportedly wearing black shorts and a grey coat at the time of the incident.
- two Aboriginal males described as having large builds. They are believed to be in the vehicles associated with the abduction, one of whom was seen travelling in a blue Ford Escape.
EPS officers are still investigating the incident and are currently interviewing witnesses.
They say the suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous and say the public should not attempt to approach any of the suspected individuals, but should instead contact the EPS non-emergency complaint line at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone
