Delta Police investigating suspicious circumstances in Tsawwassen

DELTA Police received a report on the afternoon of Friday, October 16 regarding a suspicious event that occurred the morning of Thursday, October 15 in Tsawwassen.

A girl in her teens was walking in the 1200-block of 52nd Street around 8 a.m. on October 15 when she noticed a man driving a burgundy car following her.

The girl said that the vehicle followed her at a slow speed as she turned onto 11A Avenue. The driver then apparently exited the vehicle, walked towards her while carrying a cane, and told her to come in the car.

“The girl told police she then fled, running away and says that she was not pursued,” said Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police, on Saturday. “The matter was then reported to Delta Police the following day.”

The man is described as white, in his 50s, with white hair cut short over the ears and longer on top, and was wearing brown baggy pants with a blue t-shirt at the time of the incident.

Officers are continuing to investigate, and anyone who may have information regarding this incident is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 604-946-4411.
