File # 23-5989

The North Vancouver RCMP is seeking public assistance to identify a suspicious man, after a 16-year-old girl was approached by a man driving what was described as a black BMW in the Norgate neighbourhood of North Vancouver.

On March 29th, 2023 at around 4:15 p.m., in the 1500 block of Tatlow Ave., the girl was walking alone. The driver and lone occupant of the BMW pulled alongside her, asked where she lived, and offered her a ride. When the girl declined, he followed her while repeating his offer. She repeatedly declined before the driver left the area. The girl, who was physically unharmed, returned home and reported the incident to police.

In an effort to further the investigation, we are now seeking public assistance to identify the driver of the vehicle, said Cst. Mansoor Sahak of the North Vancouver RCMP. The alleged behaviour of the driver is concerning, and we would like to speak with him. "RCMP take reports of this nature very seriously", said Cst. Sahak, confirming this was an isolated incident and no other similar reports have since been received.

Additional evidence obtained by investigators has generated a description, and police are hoping someone knows who the driver of the vehicle was.

The driver is described as:

The vehicle is described as:

Black BMW Black interior clean black interior Licence plate starting with letter H
