Girl Approached Thursday Afternoon

2200 Block Sun Valley Drive

Nanaimo RCMP are issuing an advisory after a young girl was approached by a male in a car yesterday afternoon.

The 12 year old girl was biking home from nearby Coal Tyee Elementary when she was approached in the 2200 block of Sun Valley Drive by a male driving a car. The male pulled up beside her, offered her candy then asked her to get into his vehicle. She did not speak with him and immediately left the area. She biked directly home. Once at home, she called her mother who told her to call 911 and report it. By that time almost 20 minutes had lapsed. Officers flooded the area searching for the car but were unsuccessful in locating it.

The vehicle is described as being either a 2 or 4 door, older model car and gold/beige in color. It may resemble a Nissan Sentra. The interior was gold/beige and there were white scratches on the passenger side mirror

The male is white , thin and between 40-50 years of age. He had a brown beard and a very deep voice. He wore a blue and white ball cap and had black sunglasses on the top of the hat. He also wore a blue and white checkered sweater with a white shirt underneath.

“This young girl did everything right. She did not speak with the male and she recognized the danger in the situation. She then left the area immediately and reported it as soon as possible, "said Constable Gary O’Brien, media spokesperson for the Nanaimo RCMP.
