Man alleged to have approached young girl outside NS school

The RCMP is investigating a report of a man who allegedly approached an eight-year-old girl outside a school in Liverpool last month.

Police were told a man approached the girl outside the entrance to Dr. J.C. Wickwire Academy between February 1 and February 14, offering her toys and candy.

The little girl, who was not hurt in the incident, has described the man as tall with a deep voice.

An exact description of the man is not available, but the child told officers the man may have been wearing a colourful costume.

The matter was reported to Liverpool RCMP on March 6 and police are working with the school to review surveillance video and determine the man's identity.
