Teens and youths advised to walk in groups

Delta police today received another report of suspicious behavior associated to the driver of a burgundy vehicle.

In a news release Wednesday, police note a teenage girl reported that at approximately 9:15 a.m., an older man driving a burgundy car stopped his vehicle near 11A Avenue and 52A Street in Tsawwassen. The driver stepped out and asked the girl what she was doing and where she was going.

The girl reported that she ignored the man and continued on her way.

Delta police had a similar incident reported on Oct. 15th.

That incident occurred around 8 a.m. in the 1200-block of 52nd Street.

A possible linked incident was also reported on Oct. 19th when a teenage girl said a red or burgundy vehicle made a slow U-turn near her. In that instance nothing was said to the girl.

“The reported behaviour of the driver is concerning. Police are actively investigating these incidents, and are stepping up patrols in the area,” said Delta police spokesperson Cris Leykauf.

She said the Investigations Bureau has assumed oversight.

Leykauf also said while police are canvassing homes in the area, anyone with dash cam who was in the area at that time, or who may have further information, is asked to contact the non-emergency line at 604-946-4411.

“We’re also encouraging teens or youths in the area to walk in groups if possible, carry a cell phone and to call 911 if they see any suspicious behaviour.”
