RCMP are investigating a “suspicious” incident involving a commercial van in Metchosin on Saturday.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m., on September 3rd. Police said three women were walking along Matheson Lake Park Road toward Pedder Bay Road when a white commercial van pulled over. 

According to the women, the lone male driver said “we were just going to take you around the corner.”

Police said they responded to the driver with “no” and the van drove away. 

“Though no criminal activity took place in this incident and the women are unharmed, they were alarmed by the driver’s behaviour,” said Cpl. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP Media Relations.

“We don’t know what the intentions of the driver were and would like to speak to him or any witnesses who may have information on this incident.”

The commercial van is described as white, with back sliding doors with tinted windows. The make and model are unknown. 

The driver is described as Caucasian, in his late 30s to early 40s with balding blonde hair and light coloured eyes. 

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at (250)-474-2264.
