Last Wednesday a student was accosted while walking home from school.

During lunch hour, while the student was walking home for lunch, a male in a blue car with dice hanging from the rear view mirror and flower decorated seat covers accosted her.

The student was not injured and was able to return to her house.

The male is described as being an older teenager or young adult, medium build, medium height, light complexion, either bald or very close shaven, with a dark beard, goatee and facial piercing. The male was wearing a black and grey jacket over a blue shirt and a hat with hand written lettering on it.

He asked the student for her parent’s e-mail and bank account number and if she had any money on her.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Fort St. James RCMP at 250-996-8269 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS
