Theft/Woman Dragged By Vehicle - 3300 Block 8th Street East

Investigators with the Saskatoon Police General Investigation Section are trying to locate a dark blue minivan and two suspects following the theft of a wallet on the weekend that resulted in the victim being dragged by the vehicle in a busy parking lot.

At approximately 8:00 p.m., January 6, 2017, Police were called to a shopping mall in the 3300 block of 8th Street East. A woman reported that her wallet had been stolen while she was inside a store. She and her husband confronted the male and female suspects and followed them outside. The female victim then held onto a side mirror on the suspect's vehicle as they drove away. The woman was dragged a short distance before the suspects threw her wallet out the window and fled the scene. She suffered minor injuries.

The male suspect is described as Caucasian, with blonde or red hair pulled into a ponytail. He was wearing a black jacket, dark jeans, and a black ball cap with a white logo. The female suspect is described as Indigenous, with black hair. She may have been missing some front teeth. She was wearing a black jacket with a fur lined hood and a white logo on the chest and left arm. She was also wearing black leggings and UGG boots, and carrying a grey purse.

The suspect vehicle is described as a dark blue 2005 Honda Odyssey minivan. It had been reported stolen in October and was displaying a license plate stolen from another minivan.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Saskatoon Police Service at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
