Police are looking for a man suspected in an attempted abduction of a young girl.

According to RCMP, a student at Pinecrest Elementary School, located at 300 S. Birch St., was outside with her class on Wednesday, around 2:40 p.m., when she wandered away from the group.

The girl reported that she was approached by a man who grabbed her arm and demanded that she go with him.

She was able to break free from his grip and then reported the incident to her teacher.

Police were called and were unable to locate the suspect. School staff also made sure that all students were accounted for and were safely returned home.

“Police have not received any similar reports, thus far this appears to be an isolated incident,” said Const. Keeley Deley in a news release.

Anyone with information is advised to immediately contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

The suspect is described as a man in his 30s, with short dark hair, dark skin with facial hair, approximately 5’10” tall, with a dragon tattoo on one of his forearms. He was wearing a brown T-shirt, dark pants, black and white shoes, and a black and white cap with the logo “DC” on it.
