THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Police are currently investigating a report of suspicious vehicle that may be linked to the recently reported attempted abduction in the city.

There have been at least two attempted abductions in recent days.

Thunder Bay Police are reporting, on the evening of May 28, 2017, police took a report from a female complainant who stated she was approached on Arthur Street around 11:30PM by a female who was afraid she was being followed by an SUV. The female pointed out the suspect vehicle that matched the descriptors of the greenish/blue Toyota Sequoia occupied by two males with dark complexions. She was given a ride to the area of Simpson and McKenzie Street by the complainant who then called police. When the police arrived, the victim was gone. Investigators would like to speak to this female to confirm more details.

Police would also like to speak to the males who came to the aid of the female from the reported abduction on Beverly Street on May 22, 2017.

Investigators thank the public for providing information about possible suspects or vehicles. They are looking into all the information to determine which is relevant to these investigations.

Police assert, “Social media is a great tool to help get the information out to the community in a timely fashion. Any criminal or suspicious incident should be reported to police instead of just posting to social media. This will allow for an investigation into the complaint so details can be confirmed and misinformation does not cause undue public concern”.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police are 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.tipsubmit.com.
