VIDEO: Trucker Allegedly Caught On Video Trying To Kidnap Woman
Surrey, British Columbia – The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) say they are investigating a disturbing incident involving a truck driver who appears to be attempting to kidnap a woman.
Video of the incident was posted to Facebook on April 27, 2019 by Dylan Ackimenko, who says he is friends with the woman, Kelsey Young, who the truck driver was allegedly trying to abduct.
It has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
In the approximately 1-minute video of the incident, reportedly filmed last Saturday in the early morning hours, near 188 Street and 32 Avenue; Young hastily walks away from a truck driver who is imploring her to get into his semi-truck.
“I will grab you! I will drive you,” the truck driver says as he pulls up alongside of her.
“It’s okay. It’s okay,” Young can be heard telling the driver.
“Come, come, please,” the man urges. “I will drive you! I will drive you!”
“No! No! Stop,” Young screams. “Are you kidding me right now?”
The truck driver eventually gives up and retreats back to his big rig.
“I’m filming you,” Young yells to the driver as he speeds away.
The driver appears to be operating a truck owned by Gurjap Transport Ltd. based in Abbotsford, Britsh Columbia.
In his post on Facebook, Ackimenko claims the truck driver returned to Young and assaulted her.
Ackimenko says, “the driver left and then came back after, pushed her down and stole her phone.”
He asserts Young sent him the video before the truck driver returned to steal her phone.
“My stomach hurts watching this and listening to the fear in her voice. Im so glad she got away,” Ackimenko said.
RCMP has not released any further details into their investigation at this time.
Transportation Nation Network will continue to monitor the story.
