Prince Rupert RCMP are looking for more information on potential child luring.
Police say it happened Wednesday afternoon around 2 p.m. in the upper Mall parking lot in the 500 block of 2nd Avenue.
Mounties say a man got in a taxi near the Walmart entrance and then asked a young girl that was standing in the area if she wanted to go for a ride.
The girl did not get into the taxi but went into the mall. The man then exited the taxi and walked up the pathway towards 2nd Ave West between the mall and the gas station.
The suspect is described as Caucasian, 5’10” with a stubble beard and was last seen wearing a brown jacket and Boston Bruin’s baseball cap.
The young girl is described as being around 7-years-old with long brown hair and wearing a pink sweater.
Police are hoping to talk to the suspect and the little girl or her parents or guardian.
