Off-duty officer spots suspicious situation near Lake Country school

Police are looking to the public for more information after a police officer noticed a man acting suspiciously around a young girl near a Lake Country elementary school.

Around 3 p.m. on Thursday, the off-duty officer spotted a vehicle stopped on the side of the road beside a 10-year-old girl on Mulberry Road, located near Davidson Road elementary.

“The vehicle sped off quickly when another vehicle approached,” said Sgt. Ann Morrison. “The officer stopped to speak to the young girl who said that the man was asking her personal questions about where she lived.”

Information about the suspect is minimal but it is believed he is an older male in his 60s, with short grey hair and facial hair. The vehicle is burgundy and possibly is a pickup truck.

Police and school officials are asking anyone with information on this incident or any other of a similar nature to call RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
