Ottawa Police Looking Into Random Attack

Posted by wlpo on October 9, 2010

Ottawa Police are investigating the random attack of a young girl.

Investigators learned Wednesday of an incident where a girl was approached from behind and shoved to the ground while playing in the drive way of her home on the north side of Ottawa.  The suspect fled when the girl yelled for help.  The only description of the suspect is that it was a male with a black shirt with skeletons on it.  Officers don’t think it was an attempted abduction.

Captain Brent Roalson says this serves as a reminder to parents that they should continue to speak with children about keeping open communication to assure their safety.
