The OPP have received another report about an unknown driver attempting to pick up a young female in Huntsville.
On Friday October 13th, 2017 at 8:50am a female student was walking to a local public school when she was approached on Centre Street North in the town of Huntsville by a male driving a car. The male asked her to get into the car and said he was going to drive her to school. The male referenced having permission from her parents. The female student did not get in the vehicle and the male drove away.
The male was described as wearing a grey hoodie, approximately 60-70 years of age, and possibly having a white scruffy beard. The male was also described as bald on the top of his head with white / grey hair on the sides.
The vehicle he was driving was described as an older grey/ silver 4dr sedan with rust at the bottom.
Huntsville OPP is currently investigating another similar incident which occurred on October 4th, 2017 on Main Street West near Station Road where it was describe that the driver of a grey car approached 3 young girls and asked them to get in. The girls did not engage in conversation with this male and immediately ran home.
Police believe that these incidents may be related due to the similarities of the suspect and suspect vehicle.
Anyone who may have seen this vehicle or knows who this person could be is asked to contact Huntsville OPP.
Huntsville OPP would like to remind parents to be diligent in speaking to their children about not approaching vehicles unless they know the owner, and practice “what if” situations should someone approach them.
