Barrie Police have released this composite sketch of a suspect linked to three attempted abduction attempts in the Barrie area in November.

Police in the Barrie area are warning the public about three attempted abductions which have taken place over the past month.

All three cases are similar.

In the first case, a 24-year-old woman was riding her bicycle on a pathway at the beginning of November when she was attacked by a man.

After that incident, a 36-year-old woman walking on the sidewalk reported a man trying to drag her into a bush.

The most recent incident took place on Nov. 27, when a 20-year-old woman said a stranger tried to pull her toward a car parked on the street.

A team of special investigators has been set up and a composite sketch has been released.

The suspect is white, 30-40 year old, 5’9” with a medium build. He has shoulder-length hair with blond or light-brown facial hair.

Anyone with information is being asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
