Kelowna RCMP want to speak with man who approached child

Man offered dog to 11-year-old boy.

Police are still seeking to speak with the driver of a truck who approached a child and offered him a dog on Friday afternoon.

At around 2:50 p.m., an 11-year-old boy was alone at a bus stop on Rutland Road at the corner of Benchview Road when he was approached by a man driving an older brown truck.

Police say the man had a chocolate lab in the back of the truck and asked the boy if he wanted the dog.

“The male did not supply any contact information for the boy to call if he did want the dog after speaking with his parents,” said Sgt. Craig Andrichuk.

The man drove off as the bus approached.

He is described as Caucasian, standing five foot seven inches tall and with dark hair. He was wearing a blue and red plaid shirt.

Police would like to speak with the driver and are asking anyone with information about the identity of the driver to contact Const. Evoy at the Kelowna RCMP, 250-762-3300.
