On May 8 at 9:44 p.m. members of the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment responded to a suspicious occurrence in the area of Hays Cove Avenue, in Prince Rupert, BC.

Upon arrival to the scene police were advised that a young female had been approached by a older man in a van in the late afternoon.  During a brief conversation with the driver he indicated that he knew the females mother and offered her a ride home as she appeared to be cold.  As this person was a stranger to the girl, she fled the area and ran to a nearby family members residence.

The witness described the vehicle and driver as the following;

–  Silver van (unknown licence plate)

–  Caucasian male

–  30’s

–  Short brown hair (possibly balding)

“At this point in time we are looking to identify the driver and vehicle,” stated Cst. Ericson, spokesman with the Prince Rupert RCMP.

“We are also appealing to the public for any information that may assist us in furthering this investigation”.

As this investigation is ongoing, the Prince Rupert RCMP is asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Please remember that Crime Stoppers pays cash for information that leads to an arrest.  We don’t want your name, just your information.
