A post to Facebook from a concerned mother is raising eyebrows for those who have kids in the Uplands neighbourhood.
The post said a man approached the woman’s daughter on Monday. He was Caucasian, had brown hair, a beard and drove a silver car.
She went on to say her daughter is safe and sound and she immediately called the police.
Regina police spokeswoman, Elizabeth Popowich confirmed they received a complaint on Monday around 5:30 p.m.
She said the girl was riding her bike near Uplands Drive and Fairview Road when a Caucasian man, roughly 30 to 40 years old, with brown hair and a beard pulled up to the girl and opened his passenger side door.
“(The girl) said he didn’t say anything to her but when she saw him open the door, she went straight home,” Popowich said, adding that was the right thing to do.
She said no other information was given about the car other than it was silver and had four doors.
Officers were dispatched to the area and searched the streets along with the parks but were unable to find a car or man with the same description.
Popowich said in regards to the reference about the school in the area, their last dispatch was near the beginning of February for a school presentation. She said they also didn’t receive any other reports in the area for suspicious activity.
“We don’t have enough information to establish what the motives were of the person in the car,” she said. “It could of been a case of somebody mistaking thinking they knew the child — maybe not — we just don’t know.”
She added while the child did the right and safe thing about going home and telling mom who called police — there still isn’t enough to indicate the public’s safety is at risk.
