Codiac Regional RCMP are seeking the public's help identifying the man who tried to pull a woman into the woods at Moncton's Mapleton Park this week. Megan DeWolfe, 21, told CBC News she was walking along the park's trail off Frampton Lane on Monday morning when a man grabbed her. RCMP media relations officer Sgt. Chantal Farrah said it's the third such incident in the city since April. All three incidents are being investigated, but there's no indication they are connected.
If you have any info you can call the Codiac RCMP at 506-857-2400 or go to CrimeNB.ca to submit an anonymous tip.

We all know that the town of Shediac takes it's lobster seriously...there's the international lobster festival (on now!), they have the world's biggest lobster (i mean...you can see it from space!) and now...once again...they have the record for the world's longest lobster roll! This year's record breaker is 180 feet long! That's almost 60 feet longer than the one made in PEI last year that beat the old Shediac record! Last month we heard about a lobster roll made in New Hampshire that was almost 160 feet long...but apparently that one won't be recognized because it wasn't made from one continuous roll...it was made up in different pieces. The Shediac record breaker has 125 pounds of lobster worth $5,000 in it...and will be served up at the (almost sold out!) worlds longest lobster supper on Main Street in Shediac on Sunday!
