Drumheller RCMP are in­ves­ti­gat­ing three in­ci­dents of pos­si­ble at­tempted ab­duc­tion of chil­dren in Car­bon af­ter re­ports were made of two men try­ing to lure chil­dren into their ve­hi­cles. The in­ci­dents oc­curred on Wed­nes­day, June 29 be­tween 8:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Caradoc Av­enue in Car­bon.

Two male sus­pects, driv­ing a white van or a small pick-up truck with a box top­per with rust around the wheel wells, ap­proached the chil­dren and tried to get them into the ve­hi­cle. One sus­pect is de­scribed as Cau­casian, over 6 feet tall, in his 40s, with straight chin length brown hair. His face was un­shaven and he wore a white t-shirt and ripped jeans.

An­other sus­pect is de­scribed as Cau­casian with a scruff y beard and brown hair, wear­ing a camo coloured ball­cap. The chil­dren did not get in the ve­hi­cle and were not touched by the sus­pects. Corporal Rod Gutherie said they are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent and have a few leads.

"We're con­tin­u­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion and fol­low­ing up on wit­ness state­ments and sur­veil­lance footage," Gutherie said.

Drumheller RCMP urge any­one with in­for­ma­tion about these in­ci­dents or the sus­pects to con­tact the de­tach­ment at 403-823-7590.
