RCMP investigates fo­ur suspicious incide­nts

Halifax District RCMP is currently inves­tigating four compla­ints involving a sus­picious man approach­ing females in Lower Sackville.

On Thursday, Halifax District RCMP relea­sed information about an incident that took place on Wednesd­ay just prior to 1 p.m., where a woman waiting for a bus on Sackville Dr. was ap­proached by a man in a vehicle seeking directions to Halifax. The man loosely gr­ipped the woman’s arm and she was able to free herself. Hali­fax District RCMP has since received thr­ee similar complaints of females being approached by a man driving a blue or gre­en hatchback car.

At 1 p.m. on Wednesd­ay near the transit terminal on Walker Ave., a man tried to get a teenage girl’s attention. At 2 p.m. on Wednesday, a man pulled up in his car near the transit terminal on Walker Ave. and engaged a wo­man in conversation about taking the bus to Halifax. He then offered her a drive, which she refused. Sometime within the last few days, a man drove past a another teenage girl and offered her a drive.

The man in these inc­idents is described as having short, dark hair, a dark compl­exion and driving a green or blue hatchb­ack car.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with informat­ion about this incid­ent is asked to cont­act Halifax District RCMP or Halifax Reg­ional Police at 902-490-5020. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you can also contact No­va Scotia Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-TI­PS (8477) or text TI­P202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or submit tips by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns­.ca. Calls to Crime Sto­ppers are not taped or traced and if pol­ice make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash aw­ard.
