Terrace RCMP is reminding the public about personal safety after a disturbing incident in the city earlier this week.
Mounties say a 14 year-old girl was propositioned by a man at a local business Tuesday night.
Police say the girl was walking through the Tim Hortons parking lot on Keith Avenue around 8 p.m. when a man in a blue van asked her if she wanted to make some money.
The teen ignored the man and approached a female driver in another vehicle to ask for help. The man drove off.
Constable Angela Rabut says the girl did the right thing by asking for help.
The suspect van is described as a newer navy blue model with items on a roof rack. The front passenger seat may have had a red rope attached to the headrest.
The man in the vehicle is described as Caucasian, 25-35 years old with wavy, auburn hair and a full, well-groomed beard.
Contact Terrace RCMP or Crime Stoppers with any tips.
