Grande Prairie RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance to identify a suspicious person in Sexsmith.

The incident occurred Sunday. Police say they received a report about a 10 year-old girl and her friend who were followed by a male driving a vehicle. The vehicle appeared to be a white and red Jeep with large lights.

The two youth were near the local arena when they went to get their bicycles from their school.

The male is described as having a tattoo on the left side of his face. He was wearing a white baseball hat, a blue shirt, ripped jeans and work boots at the time of the incident.

Police say a similar incident occurred on Oct. 5 in which two boys were approached by a male in a red vehicle with white fenders.

Anyone with information in regards to these incidents is asked to contact the Grande Prairie RCMP detachment at 780-830-5700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
