The Fort St. John RCMP are investigating a suspicious male that approached a 10-year-old girl.

The incident happened on Friday March 19th, but the RCMP weren’t notified until March 20th at 3pm that the girl had been approached during the Totem Figure Skating Competition being held at the Enerplex.

The male approached the girl and stated she looked upset.  The male then handed the girl candy from his pocket and walked off. 

The girl was aware it was not safe to take candy or food from strangers, but felt the situation was safe as her parents and other adults were around her.  The girl’s mother became aware of the situation and reported it to police.

The RCMP do not know the intentions of the male, but are reminding the public that handing out food products to children without their parent’s consent is inappropriate.

The RCMP are also advising the public about this suspicious activity in order to remind parents to talk to their children about their personal safety, talking to strangers and using the buddy system.

The investigation continues into this incident and the RCMP are looking for anyone who may have information to contact the RCMP at 250-787-8100.  You can also contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppersfsj.ca
