The Abbotsford Police Department is reporting that another abduction attempt took place over the weekend, but it’s not related to the one on Saturday night that involved a teenage girl.
Const. Ian MacDonald said the second one occurred at about 10 p.m. Sunday, when a 33-year-old woman was walking in the area of Marshall and McCallum roads.
She was approached by a man in a blue van who asked her if she wanted a ride.
MacDonald said the woman declined and kept walking, and the man in the blue van drove by her a second time, again offering her a ride.
The woman continued to walk and, in the area of Cherry Street and Marshall Road, she felt a hand grab her upper arm.
She was able to break free and run to a nearby residence.
MacDonald said Dwight Love-Paulson – the suspect in the first abduction attempt, which occurred Saturday in the area of Old Yale Road near Mitchell Street – was in custody at the time.
The suspect in the second incident is described as a clean-shaven Caucasian man in his early 20s with shoulder-length wavy brown hair.
He had a slim build and was wearing a dark-coloured baseball cap.
His vehicle is described as a dark-blue mini van with rounded corners similar to a Pontiac Montana.
