Suspicious occurrence reported to Terrace RCMP

TERRACE RCMP are warning the public about a suspicious occurrence that happened yesterday at approximately 4 PM near Churchhill Dr and Highway 37.

A 13 yr old girl got off the school bus and was walking home when she noticed a man following her, indicates a release from the local RCMP detachment.

The man ran off into the woods when a neighbor acknowledged the girl. The man was described as early 40's, black hair, dark clothing, 5 ft 9 inches to 6 ft, average weight, and First Nations.

Neighbors need to be aware of who and what belongs in their neighborhood and report anything that doesn’t to the RCMP immediately, she added.
