  • Print

Winnipeg police are seeking a suspicious male who approached two girls in Elmwood.

At approximately noon on Jan. 14, a nine-year-old girl and a 10-year-old girl were standing near the intersection of Keenleyside Street and Pike Crescent when a vehicle approached.
The man in the vehicle pulled up near the two girls, and through his window, offered candy to the girls. The children refused, ran away, and told an adult.

The children were not physically contacted or injured.

The male driver is described at approximately 30 years old, Asian in appearance with a dark complexion, average build with dark, ear-to-jaw-length hair. He also had a mole on his face between his nose and upper lip.

The vehicle is described as a black van with tinted windows, sliding doors on both sides, and a possible dent on the front driver’s side quarter panel.

Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to contact investigators at 204-986-2857 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
