Common Sense & Family Matters

Attempted Abduction in Ottawa

You just never know, when it could happen to you. One minute your child is there, the next they are nowhere to be found, and it could happen right in front of you.

Yesterday at the St. Laurent Transpo station a 3 yr old girl was almost abducted right in front of her parents. And it was only the quick thinking and actions of her parents, and another man that came to their aid that stopped it from happening. The child was actually in the strangers arms and heading to the backdoor before their yelling caused the man to put the child down and board a bus, escaping the scene. And it all happened in seconds.

What kind of person could be that bold? To try and abduct a child in broad daylight, in front of dozens of people in a crowded bus station? If he had succeeded there is no telling what might have happened, and I shudder to think of the possibilities. This does not sound like it was a random act, one that was acted on a whim. Is this man roaming the bus stations looking for such victims? Looking for a chance to snatch a child while the parents backs are turned for just a minute? How can we protect them every second of every day while out in public? Many times I have seen mothers alone out shopping with one or more children, and it is difficult enough to manage looking after them as well as grocery carts, strollers, and packages.  You just don’t view your children as prey, and don’t think about someone watching you waiting for that one perfect moment. But they are out there, and we need to do something about this.

The suspect is described as black, between 30 and 40 years old, 5-foot-9, medium build, with a strong smell of cologne, short black hair and wearing a black turtleneck shirt. Witnesses also reported that the suspect stumbled as he walked. Anyone with information can call police at 613-236-1222 ext. 5944 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477.

Is there any way to prevent this? Do we have to keep our children tethered to us with leashes and harnesses every moment when we are out in public? How can you protect them against these monsters that are prowling and searching without you knowing about it? Today there is a family very thankful that things turned out well, but there are many others that were not so lucky.

What are police doing about this? Are there any registered sexual offenders with GPS monitoring? Were any in the area at the time? Do any of the registered offenders match the description? This guy is going to try again, so keep your kids close and keep your eyes open. And please, sign this petition.

  1. Its why I keep an eye on my son no matter what and I hope to god I never have to chase down someone trying to take off with him.. and they better hope they never try that with my son either.

    I think its gonna take more than just parents watching out for their own kids, I think we need to reestablish relationships with our neighbors to watch out or catch suspicious activity and look out for one another.

    We all mind our business too much, when it comes to kids keep an eye out you never know what little precious child you could help.

    I was at the mall other day with my little family and saw 3 children by themselves in a photobooth. The older two looked 2nd-4th grade and they had a baby sister. I stayed until the mother got back from a store (very far from them btw) and I told her firmly that she is lucky I was there to make sure no one snatched them instead of being someone who could and would of.

    • gOOD for you butters…i hope you embarrassed the snot of her and taught her a lesson. She was likely very ungrateful.

      Your right though, it takes a community to raise a child.

  2. Beast, Butters

    I remember when people were buying cars with alarms installed in them, or even buying alarms later, and installing them. Then came The Club. We all started buying them too. Some of us, used both. THEN CARJACKING started. We were making it very TOUGH for them to steal our cars.So, it looks like they went into plan “B”, Hijacking.
    More about cars… A bass player told me this. HE would go outside on his break on a certain gig. There was a string of Bars on that side of the street, plus apartments above the “stores”. Across the street was a Bus Stop. When the Bus would stop to let off people or pick up people, this band of car thieves would STEAL any car that was there – hidden, blocked from view by the Bus. Since there were about 5, they each had their specific job and did it with lightening precision and stole many cars!

    Same with our children. We started walking them to school, schools started warning children and talking to them, or they walked two by two. THEN plan “B”, home invasions started, of all kinds. With guns, or taking children right OUT of their own beds.

    This ONE example of how that creep kidnapped JayCee has me so so so SICK and frightened for our children. The DETERMINATION, the STALKING their TARGET, their impeccable planning. I read he saw her the day before, and told his wife “That’s the one I want, I want her, she’s cute!” So they worked out their very sophisticated plan – it DID work!! They came BACK to implement their PLAN. It was this: to grab JayCee at the crest of the hill. There, he could see if any cars were coming in the opposite direction too, as well as behind him and far enough away from her Dad. So, he TIMED his driving (by circling around and driving very slowly) to just get to the crest when JayCee did. THIS was all in view of her devoted step-father too. His bike was nothing compared to a car speeding off! NO WONDER it looks like these children mysteriously VANISH into thin air. They DON’T! It is through planning, dry runs, going back, stalking their selected target, and accomplices. Our children don’t STAND a chance! They have NO idea about what is going to take place, just living their lives.

    I think this is what HAD to happen to 14 year old Amber in CA who was on her way to school to buy her lamb, and distribute her Valentines. That was Feb. Never to be heard of again. Obvious meticulous planning by these DETERMINED SEXUAL PREDATORS. Along with the PRIZE, I am sure this IS a fun GAME to these reject CREEPS, trying to keep 3 steps ahead of all of us.

    WE are getting more careful and smarter, and as usual … SO are THEY! These things I am SURE – are discussed on their sites, where they HELP each other and try to stay ahead of L.E. and watchful parents.
    BLESS The Beast And His Children, and wife, and all of us.

    • Heart – you have made some fantastic points – wish this could be posted publicly. NG should do a show on the safety of children, pointing out this information.

      Your analogies are 100% correct – the creeps are trying to stay 3 steps ahead of us in everything. What to do? We think our children are safe when they are with us – not so much anymore.

      Butters, that is right, this has now become a community effort to protect the children. As Hillary said “It takes a Village”. And, good for you looking out for the children in the photobooth.

    • Possibly. Or maybe some type of disability. I wouldn’t assume drugs right away in this case.

    Police are searching for 2 people that may be able to identify this creep. One of them actually sat with him on the route 95 bus, and the other might have had some physical contact.

    If you were a witness or think you might have ANY information no matter how small please call the sexual assault and child abuse unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5944.

  6. What’s amazing; Do a search on “attempted abduction” in the news, for the last week. You’ll be amazed at how many pages show up.

    I found one in Evanston, IL. A near north suburb along the lake. Very close to the ‘mega buck’ homes along the north shore, but an area which is known for crime. A 24 year old guy, who looks like he is 12-14 (aside from the chinese letter tat on his neck) actually tried to abduct a 10 yr old who was playing with her 8 yr old sister, and 5 yr old brother IN THEIR FRONT YARD. Asked the kids, “where is your mother”? The children replied, ” In the house” and this guy actually tried to walk off with the 10 yr old.

    Considering the sicko was only on a bicycle, he would have likely attacked her right then and there. No vehicle involved… maybe some alley or some bushes in someone’s yard?

    Fortunately the 5 and 8 yr old screamed and made enough noise for the POS perp to let her go…. He’s been caught.

    How many others?

    Do that search. We think about those who have been abducted, but you’ll pick your mouth up off the floor with just a news search of “attempted abductions”.

    Which leads me to think about the sounds of a scream as a parent. Yes, there is a scared scream, but what about play screams? What about screams that might be deliberate attempts at ‘crying wolf’?

    Sadly, (and maybe this belongs in the safety tip area) I have told my son, not only scream, SCREAM EVERY BAD WORD YOU KNOW. Get a six year old screaming cuss word bombs and someone is gonna notice!
