Victoria Police investigators are looking to speak with a man who appears to have attempted to follow a 13-year-old girl.
Thursday, officers were called after the 13-year-old reported to her parents that a man had followed her, as she had been walking through a park near the 1200-block of Park Terrace in Esquimalt, just after dark. The girl told officers that she became concerned about being followed, and began to run away from the man, who then called out to her.
Police are looking to speak with the man. He is described as a Caucasian male, 30-40 years old, with long, curly, blonde hair. He was wearing a yellow trenchcoat or jacket and was first spotted sitting on a bench surrounded by several plastic bags.
He was last seen walking in the direction of Admirals Road.
