Police in New Westminster warn of man trying to lure children

A strange man has approached youth at least twice recently according to New Westminster Police.

On Thursday (Feb. 3), while walking to elementary school in the area of Ninth Street and St. Andrew's a youth was approached by a man driving an older grey truck. Police say the man told the youth to get in the truck, suggesting it was important. But the youth ignored the man and kept walking and the truck drove off.

The man is described as being older, with a grey beard, wearing a green Nike T-shirt and black baseball cap with grey trim.

New Westminster police say a report was made in January involving a similar male and vehicle. Anyone seeing a vehicle and occupant matching the description is asked to record the licence plate number and call New Westminster Police (604-525-5411).
