Central Saanich Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspicious male after he approached two teenage girls last Thursday.

On March 26, the two girls were walking on Wallace Drive at Centennial Park when the man stopped his grey, two-door pickup truck and asked the girls for help in locating his daughter.

The girls ran away and reported the incident to police.

The man is described as being in his mid-40s with a thin build, and wearing a brown baseball hat and sunglasses.

Central Saanich Police have commended the girls for doing the right thing when approached by the man and remind parents to be vigilant and talk to their children about strangers.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Const. Jason Jewkes of the Central Saanich Police at 250-652-4441, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
