Winnipeg police are looking for a man after a young girl was pulled to the ground and dragged while on her way to school on Monday morning.
Between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., the middle-school-aged victim was walking eastbound on Greencrest Avenue towards Ulster Street in the Fort Richmond area when an unknown man approached her from behind.
