Salmon Arm RCMP say an unknown man approached the group Thursday afternoon, groping them before running away towards the Trans-Canada Highway.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, about  6 feet tall with a medium build, not clean-shaven with a raspy voice.

Police attended the area but despite patrols were unable to locate him.

He was last seen wearing a surgical mask, dark hoodie, baggy sweat pants and sunglasses with the colours blue and green.
