RCMP are investigating a suspicious incident that occurred Monday in Silver Valley, where a man offered a teenage girl a ride in a vehicle.

The teenaged girl was walking near 228th Street and 137th Avenue around 7:40 a.m., when a man approached her on foot and offered her a ride.

When the girl declined his offer, police said the male insisted.

The girl then saw a friend, so she walked away from the man.

At no time did the male attempt to grab or use any physical force toward the girl, said Const. Amanda Harnett.

When the victim went to be with her friend, the male left in an unknown direction.

He is described as Caucasian, 40 to 50 years old, with grey and brown hair, balding on top but short and curly on the sides. He is about 6’0” and lanky.

It is not known what he was wearing, but the girl described him to investigators as potentially having “mental health issues.”
