Winnipeg police are looking for a man who tried to lure a young girl into his van Friday afternoon.
Police said the incident happened around noon when a 10-year-old girl was walking near Sansome Avenue and Rouge Road. She was approached by a man in a white van who asked her if she wanted a ride.
The girl didn’t speak to the man and continued on to school where she told a teacher, police said.
Officers are now looking for a balding black man with yellow, chipped teeth. Police said he looks to be about 50 years old and was wearing a black jacket or sweater.
He was driving a white van with tinted windows, a rusted bottom and scratched sides.
