Girl, 11, Approached by Suspicious Man on Brazier Street

Winnipeg Police CrestWinnipeg police are looking for a suspicious man who approached an 11-year-old girl waiting to be picked up from school on Wednesday.

The girl was standing in the 900 block of Brazier Street at around 3 p.m. when she noticed the man watching her from his vehicle. The man got out and asked the girl a number of questions, including what school she attended and what time classes were over.

The vehicle is described as a newer model white Jeep sport utility vehicle similar to a Cherokee.
