Carmanville, Newfoundland RCMP investigates report of attempted child abduction

Carmanville RCMP is investigating a report received of an attempted child abduction that occurred on Thursday evening in Carmanville.

Shortly before 11:00 p.m. last night, police received the report. At approximately 10:00 p.m., while walking home, a teenaged youth was approached by a man driving a light grey van on Noggin Cove Road. The driver and lone occupant of the vehicle spoke to the youth, demanding that she get into the vehicle. The youth declined and the driver repeated himself two more times.
