Abbotsford Police are investigating after a man tried to lure a 14-year-old student into a vehicle.

Police said the incident occurred on Mouat Drive just after 10:20 a.m. on May 7 when a grey sedan pulled up to where the girl was waiting to be picked up and the driver told her: “Your mom sent me. I am here to pick you up.”

The student knew this wasn’t true and walked away.

The driver parked nearby for a short time before leaving, heading eastbound on Mouat Drive.

He is described as South Asian, in his 40’s and 50’s with short dark hair, with grey, that was slicked back with gel, a receding hairline, and round face. The student said the man spoke with an accent.

The vehicle had an “n” on the back beside the license plate.

Police are asking people who witnessed the incident, recognize the vehicle, or have CCTV or dash-cam footage to contact Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225.
