Burnaby RCMP seek info about suspicious van

Burnaby RCMP are seeking witnesses to an incident involving a suspicious van.

On Tuesday, May 17, at around 9:15 p.m., a 17-year-old girl was walking south on Royal Oak Avenue from the Royal Oak SkyTrain station when a white van pulled up beside her.

The side door of the van opened and two men got out, blocking the girl’s path while asking her to “come here.” The girl was able to run home without being followed.

Burnaby RCMP is asking anyone that may have witnessed the incident to call  604-294-7922 or, to remain anonymous, Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
