Police seek inquiring driver

Police are looking to speak with a dark-haired man wearing black, wire-framed sunglasses, in connection with a report of a suspicious man offering a ride to a teenager.

White Rock RCMP Sgt. Roland Pierschke said police were called around 3 p.m. March 7, after a 17-year-old girl was approached by a man in a shiny brown car in the 14800-block of North Bluff Road as she walked home from school.

The man offered the girl a ride home and asked her about her ethnic background, Pierschke said. She kept walking and the man took off after traffic started backing up behind him, he said.

According to the police report, the man told the girl he was Iranian.

She described him as 40 to 50 years old, and clean-shaven with dark facial hair and short black hair, Pierschke said.

He was wearing a light-blue, long-sleeved, collared shirt and a silver watch on his left wrist, and was driving a shiny, light-brown, four-door hatchback with a light-brown leather interior.

The man made no attempt to grab the girl, Pierschke said, and there have been no similar reports since.

Still, police want to speak with the driver, Pierschke said.

“We’re still investigating. We’d like to, of course, interview this guy.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 778-593-3600.
