Oak Bay police are investigating after a youth reported being approached by a  man in Windsor Park

Around 7 p.m. on Friday (Jan. 29) Oak Bay Police were called after a 10 year old girl about a man who had approached her while she played with friends. The girl and her friends were playing in the park when they got separated and she saw a figure in the shadows. She told police that the man approached her and she felt afraid and uncomfortable. He did not say anything to her. She called out to her friends and then they all went to the girls’ family home to tell her parents. The girl was not harmed.

The man walked to his vehicle and departed quickly, driving away in a white or silver SUV. No make or model was noted and no license plate was obtained and no direction of travel was given.

The man is described as a white male, 40 to 60 years of age, balding, with a thin build, wearing a green camouflage jacket and jeans.

Police are making inquiries and continue to investigate.

Anyone with any information can call Oak Bay Police at 250-592-2424 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
