Prince Albert police are reporting three incidents of youth in the city being approached by suspicious vehicles in recent weeks.
The first incident took place just after 8 p.m. on March 12 in the 3000 Block of 6th Avenue East. Police say the male, described as a white male in his 40s with dark curly hair, asked two females who were walking if they wanted to get into his truck. The females said “no” before walking away. The truck then drove away. The vehicle is described as a grey Dodge truck with a black grille.
The second incident happened just after 7 p.m. on March 15 on Bowerman Crescent. According to police, an unknown male described by the victim as a dark-skinned male driving a black 2-door car approached a lone youth male. The suspect opened the car door and told the youth they had candy for them and asked them to go into his car. The youth then ran away from the vehicle.
The third incident occurred just before 9 p.m. on March 16 in the 1600 Block of 15th Street West. The youths involved described the suspect as a black male driving a new white car. Police say the two youth were walking and “felt they were being followed by the car”. The driver of the car pointed at the youth and drove away without saying anything.
Police don’t know if the incidents involve the same suspects or if they are related.
The public is being asked to speak with their children and students to remind them to have a planned route when walking to and from school, walk along main roads, never talk to strangers and to call police immediately if they observe suspicious activity.
