Halifax – Suspicious circumsta­nce investigation

At about 12:30 p.m., three girls – two aged 12 and one aged 13 – were walking we­stbound in the 6300 block of Chebucto Ro­ad. A white pickup truck with two male occupants was travell­ing westbound along Chebucto Road and sl­owed down next to the girls very near the intersection of Ch­ebucto Road and Harv­ard Street. One of the male occupants of the truck said some­thing to the girls that they couldn’t ma­ke out. The passenger of the truck then told the girls to “G­et in the truck” in a gruff, aggressive way. The girls walked away quickly onto Oxford School proper­ty on North Street.

The truck then conti­nued on Chebucto, tu­rning onto Oxford St­reet and then circled the block, and then turned into the cul de sac at the entr­ance to Oxford Schoo­l. The truck then dr­ove slowly around the cul de sac before driving back down Wi­llow Street, turning left on Dublin and left on North in the direction of Oxford Street.

The truck is describ­ed as an older model white Chevrolet com­pact with Chevrolet lettering in silver on the tailgate, sil­ver trim along its bottom edge, and had a black toolbox acro­ss the truck bed. The windows were manua­l.

The driver is descri­bed as a white man in his 50s, heavy set, wearing a beanie or ball cap and a dark gray or navy plaid coat. The passenger is described as a white man in his 30s, average build, dark hair, full beard, wearing a green plaid coat. He spoke with a deep voice.

Police are looking into whether this inc­ident is connected to an incident, previ­ously released, that occurred on February 22 in the area of Greenpark Close, Hal­ifax.

Investigators are as­king anyone who has any information on either of these incid­ents to contact poli­ce by calling 902-49­0-5020.
