The public is being warned after a report of a driver requesting a young girl to get into a vehicle. Yellowknife RCMP are investigating a report of a suspicious person in a red van.
The 14-year-old girl was walking near St. Joseph’s Park on Finlayson Dr. between Range Lake Road and Dagenais Drive on Friday April 12th. The man driving the vehicle allegedly approached the youth and offered her a ride home and get into the vehicle. The girl left the scene without harm.
The driver is described as having a tanned colour skin, black hair and estimated to be in his 40s. The vehicle’s description is a mini van, red in colour with double sliding doors.
