Suspects sought after attempted abduction in north Etobicoke

Police are asking for help in tracking down two suspects after a teenage girl was grabbed after school on Wednesday in the Albion Road and Islington Avenue area.

The 15-year-old victim told police she was walking along Albion around 4 p.m. when she saw two men sitting in an older-model sports car. The passenger got out of the vehicle, followed her from behind and then grabbed her right arm.

The girl, who wasn’t hurt in the incident, managed to break free and ran to a nearby business for help and the two men took off.

The passenger in the car is described as:

  • dark complexion
  • about six feet, five inches tall 
  • mid-20s

The suspect was wearing a multi-coloured baseball cap with a flat brim and red writing. The hat also had a purple and yellow reflective sticker on the brim. The man was also wearing an oversized, multi-coloured T-shirt with writing on the front and baggy pants worn very low on the hips.

Police don’t have a clear description of the driver.

The suspects’ car had tinted windows and three distinct lines running from the front bumper along the side of the vehicle.

Anyone with information can call police at (416) 808-2300 or Crime Stoppers at (416) 222-TIPS.
