He is a skinny Caucasian with a pale complexion, sunken cheeks, and short brown hair, approximately 28 to 30 years old.

Langley RCMP have released a composite drawing of the man who grabbed a Grade 12 student from Aldergrove Community Secondary School on Thursday, Sept. 22 in the 27200 block of 32 Avenue around 1 p.m.

The girl told police a male in a red pickup truck approached her and asked if she needed a ride.

When she declined, he drove away.

But a short time later, further east on 32 Avenue, he parked his vehicle, exited and moved towards the teen.

He grabbed her arm but released her when she punched him in the face.

The man then returned to his vehicle and fled.

The vehicle is described as a 1998- 2000 Dodge Dakota pickup truck, fire engine red with a matching canopy with tinted windows.

The girl noted there was some rust on the running board behind the front passenger wheel.

The truck had chrome bumpers and there was some sort of decal or emblem on the passenger side tailgate.

There was a silver chain with an angel on it hanging from the rear view mirror.

The man was wearing a white T-Shirt with a steering wheel and black bird design.

The Langley Serious Crime Unit is investigating.

Officers said they hope to obtain footage of the truck from some traffic cameras in the area.

If you recognize the person in the composite drawing, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
