Man wanted following strange run-in with kids

A couple of girls ran into an unfriendly stranger while biking on Brown Road in West Kelowna last Friday.

Just before 1:30 pm, the 10 and 11 year old tried to pass the man on the sidewalk, which apparently startled him.

Police say the man grabbed the older girl's bike, shook her off, and then pulled on her wrist before pushing her to the ground.

Fortunately, he didn't end up injuring her, but reportedly just walked away from the scene.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, with reddish brown curly hair, who was wearing a grey trench coat, jeans, brown boots and large yellow head phones.

Any witnesses are being asked to call the West Kelowna detachment.
