More Suspicious Incidents
Prince George, B.C.- There have been two more suspicious incidents in Prince George, which the RCMP believe are related.
At approximately 7:45 am on Friday January 8th, 2016, the Prince George RCMP received a report of suspicious incident near the corner of 15th Avenue and Central Street East in Prince George. An adult female was on foot in that area when an unknown adult male began a conversation with her. The man acted strangely and made strange comments making the female feel uncomfortable and unsafe. The male kept walking on foot, east bound on 15th Avenue. The man was described as:
- Caucasian male
- Approximately 173 cm (5’8″)
- 35 to 40 years old
- Short “buzz cut” hair with brown facial hair
- Wearing a black winter coat and had a lanyard of keys in his hand
About an hour later, police received a call from the administration of Harwin Elementary School on Harper Street, near 15th Avenue. Police were advised that a student had been spoken to by an adult male on 15th Avenue before school. The adult was acting strangely, leaving the child to feel uncomfortable. The child, who was not touched, continued on to school and reported the incident to administration. The man was described as:
- Caucasian male
- 55 years old
- Grey hair and a “scruffy” beard
- Wearing beige clothes
Patrols were made in both cases, no one was located.
Due to the close proximity in time & location, information gathered from the witnesses and similarities found, police are investigating the possibility that the persons reported on in each of these investigations may be the same person and may be suffering from a mental health issue.
The incidents are in addition to two other, non related encounters that happened yesterday ( see previous story)
Police would like to speak to the person or persons involved in these incidents. If you have any information about these incidents or who the person or persons may be, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300.
