Attempted abduction of woman in Surrey

SURREY RCMP are seeking witnesses to an attempted abduction of a woman in the area of Edinburgh Drive and 132 Street.

On Sunday, October 10, just before midnight, Surrey RCMP received a report that a woman was grabbed from behind by an unknown male who attempted to drag her away as she walked on a path in the green-space connecting Edinburgh Drive and 132 Street.

The woman screamed out for help and local residents came to her aid, chasing after the suspect as he ran away. Police attended and spoke to some of the witnesses who helped the female. The woman was physically uninjured, but was emotionally upset and disturbed by the incident.
