Maple Ridge, B.C. – Ridge Meadows RCMP are investigating a suspicious incident where an adult male offered a teenaged girl a ride Monday morning. Constable Amanda Harnett said, “At approximately 7:40 a.m. Monday September 14, 2015 a teenaged female was walking in the area of 228 Street and 137 Avenue when a male approached her on foot and offered her a ride. When the girl declined his offer, the male insisted. At this time the girl saw a friend, so she walked away from the man.
At no time did the male attempt to grab or use any physical force toward the girl. When the victim went to be with her friend, the male left in an unknown direction. He is described as a Caucasian male, 40 to 50 years of age, with grey/brown hair, balding, with short curly hair on the sides. He is described as being tall, approximately 6 feet, and lanky. It is unknown what he was wearing, but the girl described him to investigators as potentially having mental health issues.”
