Nineteen-year-old woman ran to safety

  • Jun. 29, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Oak Bay Police responded after a man attempted to lure a female jogger into his vehicle Saturday (June 28).

Around noon, a 19 year old woman was jogging on Cadboro Bay Road near Oak Bay High school when a man she later described as white in his late 40’s, with salt and pepper hair, a high forehead and a thin build, wearing a plaid shirt and jeans, stopped and exited his vehicle. He opened the passenger door for the girl as she came toward his truck and made some sexually explicit comments in a “creepy way.” The vehicle was described as a low-slung, blue pickup truck in rough condition. The young woman was unable to get a licence plate number.

She continued running and called police when she got home. There was no sign of the man after a search of the area and other area police departments were advised. The investigation and further inquiries are ongoing.

If you have any information regarding this suspicious incident, please call the Oak Bay Police at 250-592-2424 and quote file #14-2254, or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
