Lethbridge Police are investigating another attempted child abduction in a west side neighbourhood.

Officers were called to a home along Mount Sunburst Place in Sunridge Monday (Oct. 21) around 4:30 pm after a nine year old boy said he was followed by a man in an alley, who then tried to grab him by the hand.

The boy pulled away, and ran home. Police extensively searched the area with the help of a K-9 unit, but to no avail.

The man is described as wearing a black hoodie, black pants and possibly had a skull tattoo on his left arm.

Last week, a young girl reported a man, fitting almost the same description, tried to grab her twice on two separate occasions.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lethbridge Police.
