At approximately 6:30 p.m. last evening, RCMP received a call about a suspicious vehicle on MacLellan Street. An 11-year-old girl was walking home when a vehicle pulled up, driven by a male, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
At this time, it appears the driver may have attempted to reach out to the girl.
Police can confirm that the girl was not touched or injured. The vehicle is described as a small black compact, possibly a hatchback. The driver is described as a white male, approximately 30 years-old, light brown hair, average height, thin with no facial hair.
The investigation is still in the very early stages. The RCMP are trying gather additional information and are asking anyone with information to come forward to the Antigonish RCMP detachment (902 – 863-6500) or by contacting the Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), text TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
