Winnipeg police are on the lookout for a suspicious male who approached several young girls earlier this week.
A group of girls aged 10 to 11 were playing in the 1000 block of Clifton Street on Dec. 20.
Police said a man approached them and called them over, but they ignored him. The man eventually walked away towards Sargent Avenue.
Police are now looking for a man who is between five-foot-six and five-foot-seven with a heavy build, dark complexion, greyish hair and a thin grey moustache.
He was wearing a dark grey-green winter jacket and a royal blue toque.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 204-986-2839.
