Assistance requested in identifying a suspicious male

File # 2020 – 9243
The Terrace RCMP are requesting the public’s help in locating an individual suspected in attempting to lure a child into a vehicle.

On Friday, September 18, 2020 at 6:00 pm, the Terrace RCMP received a complaint advising that a male approached their son on the 4600 Block of Park Avenue. The parent of a child explained that her son had been playing at the small kids park and a male approached him asking him to ‘come to my van, I have candy’.

The child said no and ran back to his parent for safety, where the male then disappeared. The male was said to be wearing black pants and a grey shirt. He was described as middle aged, dark tanned skin, with a light-patchy beard and was stocky. No description of the van was available.

If you have any information about this person or where they might be, please contact the Terrace RCMP at (250) 638-7400 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800) 222-8477.
