The Halton Regional Police Service is investigating the attempted robbery of a female jogger on the McCraney Creek Trails near Pilgrims Way on Saturday, November 19,  2016 at approximately 4:00 PM. McCraney Creek Trails and Pilgrims Way, just east of Abbey Park High School, is located in the community of Glen Abbey in the Town of Oakville, Ontario.

The victim was jogging on the trails when she observed a male on the trails behind her approaching. The suspect reached the victim and made a demand for valuables. The victim indicated she had nothing and the suspect fled the area.

The victim reported to police the suspect was carrying a handgun. The victim did not suffer any injuries and called police sometime later after returning home. Police and K9 units flooded the area. A young person similar to the suspect description was located in the area and detained, but later released from custody after further investigation.

Suspect is described as: male, dark complexion (possibly middle eastern), 5’10”, thin build, wearing a grey zipper front hoodie, dark pants and carrying a back pack. The suspect’s face was covered with a white/black bandana.
