Girl, 12, escapes alleged abductor on Kakhewistahaw First Nation: RCMP

The Broadview RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance.

RCMP in Broadview are investigating a reported abduction that occurred Tuesday afternoon and spawned social media panic of other such incidents.

A 12-year-old girl says she was at the Kahkewistahaw School after 4 p.m. when a man in a black truck pulled up and asked her if she wanted a ride, according to police.

She says she accepted and was driven near the boundary of the Kahkewistahaw First Nation, located 2 hours east of Regina.

She says the suspect stopped the vehicle and both of them exited at which time the girl made a break for it. She made her way back to a business on the First Nation.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, tall, thick build, dark brown hair, green eyes, and a deep voice.  The truck is described as black in color, clean with beige leather interior, and dark tinted windows.

Photos of a truck alleged to have been involved have circulated widely on social media but police aren’t able to confirm if it was the vehicle.

As word got out, communities surrounding Kahkewistahaw also reported suspicious vehicles and abduction attempts, furthering the panic.

“We are aware of the social media post you are referring to and investigators are looking into it,” says a statement from the RCMP.

“At this time, there is no indication that there is any substance to it. We have not received any complaints of attempted abductions on (neighbouring) Piapot First Nation.”

The Broadview RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance from anyone that may have seen a black truck travelling around Kahkewistahaw Wednesday afternoon.

If you have information about this or any other crime, please contact Broadview RCMP at 1-306-696-5200, Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at www.saskcrimestoppers.com.

  6. I agree with you Krista. And I bet the it would’ve taken days for an amber alert to be issued if it came to that (thank God it didn’t). I’m glad she was smart and escaped.

    1. A report was on the News this morning that said A man in a Black Truck was reported to Police in MooseJaw Sk. Apparently this man was on the Southwest side of MooseJaw Sk. asking Kids if they wanted a ride home. A School News Letter was sent out to our cell phones this morning to warn us about this man in a Black Truck asking Kids if they want a ride home, and to please talk with our Children about his danger!
