  • Print

Winnipeg police are looking for a man following a suspicious incident involving a nine-year-old boy.

The boy was alone and waiting for his school bus on Wednesday at approximately 8:20 a.m. at Kingsbury Avenue and Aikins Street when he was approached by the man.

The man began asking questions to the boy but walked away to a nearby black van when the school bus arrived.

On Thursday, the boy was waiting for the school bus at the same time and intersection, this time with his mother.

The same man was seen parking a short distance away, where he appeared to be watching them. Police were called but the man had already left before police arrived.

The suspect is described as Asian in appearance, approximately 5’4" tall with a medium build.

The vehicle is described as a black, dirty van with windows and sliding doors on both sides.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 204-986-2848 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
