Seeking public assistance - attempted abduction

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance for information leading to the identity and whereabouts of people believed to be involved in an attempted abduction.

At approximately 3:20 p.m., on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, police were called to a residence in the 2800 block of 23 Avenue S.W. The victim had arrived home when an older-model green SUV pulled up behind him and two men exited the vehicle. They produced a handgun and demanded the victim go with them. The victim began banging his car and honking his horn to draw attention, causing the suspects to flee.
