Pierrefonds attempted abduction suspect sketch released

Montreal police have released a composite sketch of a man they believe may have been involved in an attempted abduction of a nine-year-old girl at Villeret Park in Pierrefonds, Que. on July 3. 

The girl told police she was playing in the park with friends at about 4 p.m. She said a man approached her and started talking to her. When she started to run away, the man tried to grab her, police said.

She was able to flee and went home and told her parents. 

The girl's parents contacted police.

The man was described as in his 40s with a thin build, but a pronounced belly. 

Police are urging people in the area to keep their eyes open and contact police if they see anything suspicious or out of the ordinary.
