Adam Beedle Charged In Alleged Surrey Kidnapping Attempt

SURREY, B.C. - Mounties say a man has been charged after attempting to abduct a four-year-old girl from a park in Surrey, B.C.

Police received a 911 call Saturday from girl's father, who said a man tried to take his daughter.

RCMP say the father noticed a stranger talking to his daughter in Holland Park and that when he approached the two the man left, only to return and shout at him.

Police say the 32-year-old man tried to escape on a bicycle but was captured a few blocks away by patrol officers who flooded the area after hearing about the call.

Adam Beedle, of no fixed address, is accused of uttering a threat, possession of a controlled substance and attempted abduction of a person under 14.

Sgt. Dale Carr says the father did the right thing by intervening when he became suspicious.
