A surveillance video has been released in an attempted abduction investigation and police are hoping someone will recognize the man in the video.
Just a few weeks ago, a 9 year old boy was walking to school in the Thorncliffe Park Drive and Overlea Boulevard area, when he was approached by a man who grabbed him by the shoulder.
The boy was able to break free and ran to school.
A few hours later, over the lunch break, the boy was approached by the same man. He ran back to school and told a teacher.
The man has been described as brown, 40s to early 50s, 6’0″, with short light brown hair, short light-grey facial hair near the chin, and a mustache. He was wearing a white shirt, dark zip-up jacket, black pants with Adidas near pocket, Nike shoes with orange on them, and a black hat with an orange circular symbol.
Police say the person of interest has a very distinct walk.
