Kitimat RCMP are investigating what they're calling a suspicious incident, in which an 11-year-old girl was reportedly offered a ride by a stranger last week.


Police say the girl was walking home from school in the Kildala area of Kitimat at 12:15 Thursday afternoon, when an older man driving a black S-U-V, possibly a Chevrolet, stopped and offered her a ride home.


The girl said no, and the vehicle drove off without any further interaction.


The driver of the SUV is described as an older Caucasian man with white hair, no facial hair and no glasses.


If you can help police identify the person, contact Kitimat RCMP or Crime Stoppers.


Staff Sergeant Graham Morgan is also reminding everyone out walking alone to stay alert and be aware of their surroundings.
