Police encourage reporting of suspicious events following reports involving children

Terrace RCMP are asking the public to report any suspicious adult interactions with children following two separate incidents of concern.

In a press release police say on Jan. 4 they received a report of an elderly man approaching a boy walking home and asking where he lived. The man was reported to be standing in trees near the school and was described as Caucasian, in his 70s wearing a black DC ball cap and blue jeans.

A few weeks prior to that a teenage girl walking downtown around 2:30 a.m. reported being approached by a man and then followed in a blue sedan. He was described as Caucasian in his 30s, over six-feet tall with brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing shorts and a short-sleeve shirt.

As of Jan. 22 police had not substantiated either claim, but ask the public to review safety protocol with their children and report any suspicious interactions.
