Stranger entices girl, 10

WINNIPEG police are looking for a 50-year-old man after a stranger approached a 10-year-old girl Friday in the Westwood area and offered her a ride.

The girl was walking near the intersection of Sansome Avenue and Rouge Road around noon when she was approached by a man in a white van. She didn't speak with him and continued on her way to school, where she reported the incident to her teacher.

The man is described as African-Canadian, about 50 years old, short, bald, but with curly hair on the sides, and having yellow, broken teeth. He spoke in a deep voice and had no accent. He was wearing a black jacket or sweater.

The van is described as having tinted windows, rust along the bottom and scratches along the side.

Anyone with information on this incident or the suspect is asked to contact the police or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
