It's a parent's worst nightmare: a child being approached by a stranger in their own neighbourhood and abducted. While that was almost what happened in a recent Toronto attempted abduction, the child was luckily able to get away. Now, the police are looking for the suspect, whose car was caught on video.

In this case, the child was an 8-year-old girl who was walking near Blaydon Public School. In a release, Toronto Police said that the girl was outside at 3:30 p.m. on November 1 when she was approached by a "strange man."

The man then reportedly grabbed the girl, covered her mouth, and dragged her for approximately 60 metres toward his vehicle, which was later identified as a red Mazda CX 5. The suspect then tried to force the girl into his vehicle. However, the girl managed to escape from her abductor.
