SQ searching for man approaching young girls

Provincial police are asking for help in identifying a man believed to be involved in a number of incidents involving young girls north of Montreal.

The suspect, believed to be about 30-years-old, reportedly approached girls between the ages of 10 and 14 in Sainte-Thérèse, Blainville and Boisbriand between February and September 2017.

Investigators said the man would stop his vehicle near them; sometimes he would call out to them in order to get their attention and then commit an indecent act in his car before fleeing the scene.

According to police the man has brown hair, brown eyes and is heavy set. He drives a four door sedan, possibly a Mazda, Honda or Hyundai.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sûreté du Québec at 1-800-659-4264.
