  • Print

Winnipeg police are looking for a man who tried to convince a nine-year-old girl to help look for his dog.

Police said today that the girl was walking back to school in the 1000 block of Ducharme Avenue with her brother on Thursday during the noon hour when a man they didn’t know began walking behind them.

Police said after the girl’s brother headed off towards his own school, and she crossed Ducharme near Houde Drive, the man came up to her and asked if she would help him look for his dog.

Police said the girl didn’t answer and ran to the school where she told staff what happened.

The man is described as 30 to 40 years of age, 5'10", and short brown hair. He was wearing a red hoodie and black shorts.

Anyone with any information is asked to call investigators at 204-986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
