Suspicious motorist in Lake Country prompts RCMP warning

Two reports of suspicious adult male approaching young women in Lake Country

Lake Country RCMP are reminding residents to stay vigilant after two separate occasions of a suspicious man offering rides to young women in the area.

RCMP received two reports of the alleged actions in the last 24 hours.

In both cases, the unknown male motorist drove away, after the teens did the right thing and blatantly turned down the man’s offer, and then reported the encounter to the RCMP,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.
