Maple Ridge police seek suspicous driver

Ridge Meadows RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a male driving a silver grey car, possibly a Nissan.  The man slowed down to talk with a young girl near the intersection of 122 Avenue and 228 Street just after 11 a.m. on  Wednesday, May 21.

“The male simply called out to a young girl as she was walking along 122 Avenue," Sgt. Jennifer Hyland. "He did not ask her to get into his vehicle, nor did he make any attempt to get out to speak to her.

"However, this type of behavior is very alarming to both the child’s parents and police. Investigators need to know who this person is, and make sure he is fully aware this is not the right thing to do.”

The male is described as a dark-skinned male in his mid 20s.  He had a medium build; dark hair that was short and clean-cut, and a trimmed beard in a single line along the bottom part of the face. He was wearing a red t-shirt with a white ‘squarish’ logo on the front.

The car he was driving is described as a compact car, like a Nissan, newer model, silver in colour.

Anyone with any information regarding this vehicle or person is asked to call Ridge Meadows RCMP at 604-463-6251, or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 or leave a tip online at www.solvecrime.ca.  Crime Stoppers will pay a reward of up to $2,000 if your information leads to an arrest and conviction.
