A 12-year-old girl was kidnapped by two men on her way to school on Wednesday morning in Sutton. Luckily, the young girl was able to escape. Aurélie Guindon, media representative for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ), explained that the kidnapping was not a random act. The girl was allegedly targeted for ransom because one of her parents is a bank employee. The two suspects have not yet been apprehended. One speaks English while the other speaks French. They were spotted driving a pale-coloured “Econoline” type minivan around Fougères, Maple, and Academy Streets in Sutton. The SQ is also looking for a white male wearing black clothing along with a white shirt and shoes, thought to be an important witness. He was spotted Wednesday at 9 a.m. at a Tim Horton’s on Knowlton Street in Lac Brome. The SQ is also on the lookout for a second vehicle, a pale Dodge Caravan, most likely grey, spotted around 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. on local security tapes. The SQ has asked that anyone who recognizes the individuals described or anyone with additional information should call the Centrale de l’information criminelle de la Sûreté du Québec at 1-800-659-4264.
