Police released a sketch on Friday morning of the suspect involved in an abduction near Landmark on Sunday morning.

A 16-year-old girl was walking her dog southeast of Landmark along Ste Anne’s Road when the man pulled up and asked if she needed a ride. After refusing, she was forced into the pickup truck. As the vehicle approached a dead-end on Road 45N, about four kilometres east of Landmark, the girl escaped and fled to a nearby residence, sustaining minor injuries.

The suspect said to be as a male, 18-22 years-old, clean cut, about 5’8" with a medium build, with a light-brown complexion, thick and wavy black hair, and round face.

The suspect was described as wearing a blue sweater with a hood, with yellow flame writing on the front. Police said the suspect was described as wearing shorts that resembled swim shorts with a blue-to-green-to-blue pattern. He may have been wearing sandals, police said.

The suspect’s truck is described as an older model, matte black, 4-door pick-up truck, with a tinted rear window. The vehicle does not have running boards or steps, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the St Pierre RCMP at 204-433-7433, call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com.
