Strathmore RCMP have laid charges against a Calgary man in regards to an attempted abduction in Langdon last month.

On Aug.16, RCMP received a complaint from a young adult woman who was approached by an unknown male, who was insistent in his efforts to pick her up despite her refusal.

The man allegedly grabbed the woman to force her to take a photo with him, when she attempted to flee he grabbed her by the neck and started dragging her towards his vehicle.

According to RCMP a bystander intervened, and the male immediately fled the scene.

Following an investigation RCMP were able to identify a suspect.

32-year-old Mohamad Jeha of Calgary has been charged with attempted kidnapping and assault.

He has been released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Strathmore Provincial Court on September 19, 2017.
