The Niagara Regional Police are asking for the public’s help after a failed abduction attempt in Niagara Falls on June 27.

A woman in her 20s was walking on the sidewalk in the Murray Street and Stanley Avenue area at 4 pm when a man driving a newer model car pulled over, approached her and then grabbed her arm, telling her to get into his car.

The woman shook loose and ran across the street.

Another vehicle (“black BMW style” say police) witnessed the events and according to the police may have yelled at the man and honked his horn.

The suspect car was described as a newer model silver Buick, Quebec licence plate with black leather interior.

The suspect is described as a black male, 30 to 40 years old, roughly 6-foot and 180 pounds, wearing blue jeans, a light-coloured T-shirt and a gold chain around his neck.

Detectives are trying to identify and speak to the driver of the black BMW and any other witnesses, to help identify the suspect. Members of the public with information can contact Detective Constable [email protected] or call 905-688-4111, extension 1029457.

Anyone (residents or businesses) in the area with closed circuit security cameras, doorbell video cameras, or dash cameras are asked to review their footage for suspicious activity for the period between 3:30PM and 4:30PM on June 27, 2021.

Members of the public who wish to provide information anonymously can contact Crime Stoppers of Niagara online or by calling 1-800-222-8477.
