Witnesses sought in altercation between man and Campbell River girl

Police are seeking witnesses who saw an altercation between a teenaged girl and a man.

The alleged incident occurred Feb. 13, around 3:50 p.m., in the 1300 block of Greenwood St. near Rehabilitation in Motion.

According to RCMP, the 14-year-old girl was walking west on Greenwood when she heard footsteps and was then pushed up against a building by a man or teenager.

He demanded that she look at him, but the girl looked down and told him to get away. The man refused, showed her a small knife and then fled east on Greenwood and then north on 13th Avenue.

A woman, passing by in a tan-coloured car, stopped and asked the girl if she was okay. The girl said she was all right and the woman proceeded on her way.

Police would like to speak to the driver and are seeking anyone else who saw the altercation or has information about the suspect.

The aboriginal male suspect is described as slim, short, with brown hair and some facial hair. He was wearing an oversized black zip hoodie frayed around the wrists, dark blue jeans, tan work boots with darker laces, and he was possibly wearing sunglasses. He also has a deep voice.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
