Surrey Police Investigate Abduction Attempt

Posted: Updated:

Authorities are investigating an attempted abduction that occurred over the weekend in Surrey.

The incident happened Saturday evening on Pleasant Avenue when two males in their 30s, driving a white 90s model Corsica, approached a woman and her two children.

The suspects tried to coax the woman into the vehicle before she ran to a neighbor's house with her children and called the police.

The suspects left the scene before the police arrived.

Surrey Chief of Police, Pete Schneider, says it's important for residents to be aware of their surroundings.

(Pete Schneider, Surrey Chief of Police)"Two adults are better than one. Make sure you have a cell phone that's charged. Have pepper spray on you. If you are confronted by someone, make a lot of noise. Don't be afraid to scream and holler and act like a fool."

Anyone with information leading to the conviction of the individuals is asked to call the Surrey Police Department at 852-4159.
