Topic: Warning from the North Vancouver RCMP

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

The North Vancouver RCMP are warning the community about a male who exposed his genitals to a young female last week. The 13-year-old female was approached by a man in a silver SUV in the late afternoon as she was walking along 27th Ave. West, in North Vancouver. The man called the girl over on the pretense of asking for directions. When she approached, he made a lewd comment and exposed his genitals. The young female ran away and was not physically harmed.

 

For a description and sketch of the suspect, along with additional details about the incident, please read the North Vancouver RCMP public alert: http://bc.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/ViewPage.action?siteNodeId=2120&languageId=1&contentId=60000

 

We ask that you please consider reminding your child of the following safety precautions:

  • If possible, arrange to walk with friends to/from school
  • Do not talk to strangers
  • If you are approached by a stranger, go to a public place or yell for help
  • Tell a trusted adult as soon as possible

 

Additional safety tips are available in the above linked RCMP safety notice.

 

Sincerely,

Brad Baker
