Essex County OPP are seeking the public's help identifying a suspicious man who approached two girls in Tecumseh.

Police say the girls were walking on Dillon Drive east of Lesperance Road when they were approached by a man in a vehicle on Saturday, August 24 at 9:30pm.

The man asked for directions to the Tecumseh Corn Festival and then drove away.

According to police, he then circled around two more times to speak with the girls.

On the third trip around he allegedly propositioned the girls in a sexual manner; that's when the girls ran off and the man drove away.

The vehicle is described as a black late model Jeep Sport Utility Vehicle with no distinguishing features.

He's described as a white man, bald, approximately 40 years of age, with salt and pepper facial hair.

The OPP is asking anyone who may have information regarding his identity or the vehicle driven, to contact police or Crime Stoppers immediately.
