North Vancouver RCMP are appealing to the public for witnesses to three concerning incidents in local neighbourhoods.
Police is investigating the incident that took place last week in Blueridge, Seymour Heights and Maplewood neighbourhoods.
On Thursday, November 18, at approximately 7 pm, an adult man approached a 14 year-old teenager on a trail near Blueridge Elementary and asked the teen to help find his dog.
In a second incident, on Friday, November 19, at approximately 4 pm, the same teenager reported that the same man approached him and an altercation took place.
The incident happened on a walking trail near Seymour Heights Elementary.
The third incident occurred at 4 pm on Saturday, November 20, near the corner of Windridge Drive and Riverside Drive in Maplewood.
A woman at a stop sign was approached by a man who tried to open her locked rear passenger door, and then left without saying anything.
In the first two incidents involving the teenager, the man was described as a Caucasian man, 5’7″, skinny and with no facial hair and a deep voice.
The man was wearing a black hat and red flannel jacket.
In the third incident involving the woman, the man was described as an Indigenous male, 45-50 years old, with black hair. He was wearing a baseball cap with a bird on it, and a black leather jacket and Addidas-style striped track pants.
Police are reassuring the community that they are aware of the incidents and are investigating.
“While these incidents are alarming for the community, we do not feel there is evidence to indicate a heightened risk to the public,” said Cst. Kelly McIntyre of the North Vancouver RCMP.
Anyone who witnessed any of the three incidents, or may have video surveillance or dash camera footage, is asked to call the North Vancouver RCMP at 604-985-1311.
