Mounties investigate attempted teen luring

A teenaged girl was approached by a stranger in Langley City.

Langley RCMP are worried about a potentially disturbing incident that took place in the City on July 15.

A teenaged girl and two 10-year-old boys were walking in the 5400 block of 203rd Street just before 5 p.m., said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The two boys were walking ahead when the teenager was approached by a middle-aged man. He told her to come with him, but she told him no and ran away, said Largy.

The teenager ran back to the two boys and they continued on their way. The man followed them for a short time before turning off on a side street, said Largy.

The man is described as about 45 years old, 5’10” to 5’11” tall, with brown eyes, a short, scruffy beard, and messy, knotted, frizzy hair. He was wearing a dark brown T-shirt and dirty, grey shorts.

Largy said these incidents remind parents to review important safety information with their children, such as not accepting gifts from anyone you don’t know who approaches you.

Also, parents can ensure their children know who they can talk to you freely, said Largy.

Finally, if they do become involved in a suspicious incident like this one, encourage children to come directly home to tell you about it. That reduces the time delay in reporting to the police.

Anyone with information on this incident can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
