Police say Sask boy used bike to save his little brother from child abductor

RCMP say it’s fortunate a boy wasn’t injured when he rescued his five-year-old brother from the clutches of an alleged child abductor in a small Saskatchewan community.

COLONSAY, Sask. — RCMP say it’s fortunate a boy wasn’t injured when he rescued his five-year-old brother from the clutches of an alleged child abductor in a small Saskatchewan community.

Police say a woman in Colonsay, east of Saskatoon, drove up to the younger sibling over the noon hour Thursday and asked him if he wanted to go for lunch.

“He said ’no’ and she then got out of the vehicle and grabbed the boy and placed him in the vehicle,” Sgt. Carole Raymond said.

The child’s 11-year-old big brother was nearby and heard what was happening.

“He obviously felt that he was going to stop the vehicle and use whatever he could and that was his bicycle,” Raymond said.

The boy blocked the path of the car with his bike and then managed to open the back door and pull his brother out. The two boys then fled.

“It’s a good thing she didn’t decide to drive over the bicycle and didn’t go forward and it gave him that opportunity to get the door open,” Raymond said.

Later on, when school let out of the day, police believe the same woman approached another boy — a nine-year-old — but was unsuccessful in coaxing him to go with her.

Raymond said investigators have yet to determined the woman’s motives.

Police are looking for a female, 30-40 years of age, with long white hair, wearing a pink shirt and skirt.

The vehicle is white or greyish with Alberta plates.
