Richmond RCMP are asking for the public’s help following a suspicious incident last week.
A 10-year-old Richmond boy was apparently approached by a stranger around 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 14 in the 6800 block of Azure Road. The man allegedly told the boy he knew his mother and was supposed to take him home.
The boy said he was suspicious of this, so he ran away and returned home. The incident was reported to Richmond RCMP the following day. A potential suspect was identified at the time of reporting, but police have since determined that this individual was not involved. Richmond RCMP Youth Section and General Investigation Section have been actively following up on various investigative avenues.
The suspect driver has been described as follows:
• of Asian descent
• possibly had an accent
• 50 years of age
• short straight black hair
• pimpled/freckled/dotted face
• wearing a white shirt and gold chain
The vehicle is described as:
• champagne coloured
• black circle logo surrounded by Asian-type writing
Anyone with information on this matter is asked to contact the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212. Reports can also be made by email at Richmond_Tips@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. Should you wish to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
