RCMP news release - unknown male tries to pick up young girl in Kitamaat Village

On Saturday, September 24 at approximately 7:00 P.M. an unknown male in a truck asked a fourteen year old girl if she wanted a ride while she was walking on Gitskan Ave. in the Kitamaat Village. The male asked her if she was going to the store, if he could buy her something, and if she wanted a ride. The girl declined twice and the male eventually drove away. The male was described as Caucasian with white/grey medium/short hair, clean shaven, brown eyes, wearing a brown jacket and ‘skinny’ glasses. The truck he was driving was a white two door truck (possibly a Ford or Chevy) with a red external tidy tank in the rear box, no plate number was obtained.
