Police in Beaumont are asking for the public’s help to identify a male suspect in connection to an incident where two teens were spoken to by a man who identified himself as an officer.

RCMP said the incident happened at about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday – an unidentified male was parked in a newer model, black SUV with tinted windows, when he called over two teens, a 13-year-old male and 14-year-old female.

Investigators reported the man told the teens he was an officer, and asked questions police described as “probing and concerning”. Police said he never made physical contact with the teens, or ask them to get into his car.

The man drove away after a few minutes.

The incident was reported to police at about 6 p.m. that day, and they immediately launched an investigation – RCMP are working to determine if anyone witnessed the exchange, and have tried to track down the vehicle.

The man has been described as:

  • Caucasian with a dark complexion
  • About in his mid-40s
  • Green eyes
  • Dark hair, with receding hairline
  • Scars on his face

RCMP said he was wearing a dark golf-type shirt – his clothes didn’t resemble any type of police uniform.

RCMP are asking anyone with information to contact them, and the male involved is asked to call Beaumont RCMP to explain what happened.

Anyone with information is asked to call Beaumont RCMP at 780-929-7410, or local police.
