Teen grabbed but gets away

Kamloops RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who grabbed a teenage girl on 9th Avenue Wednesday afternoon.

On Dec 6th at around 2:30 p.m., a 15-year-old girl had a frightening encounter as she walked northbound on 9th Avenue, between South Kamloops Secondary School and Lloyd George Elementary School, when a middle-aged man grabbed her by the arm.

Luckily, the girl was able to pull away and run down to Columbia Avenue where she was meeting her father.

Patrols were made by both the girl’s father and police officers but a suspect was not located, police said.

The man is described as Caucasian, approximately 50 years old, wearing a black toque, black hoodie and baggy brown pants.

Anyone with information about the incident or who can identify the male, is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
