Lambton OPP is asking for the public’s help in locating a suspicious male after a young girl was approached this week in Petrolia.

Police say just before 6pm on Monday, a girl out for a walk with her dog on North St. was approached by an unknown man driving a brown van or SUV with dark windows.

Police say the man asked the girl to go to his home for candy. At that point she ran for help and the man drove off.

He’s described as about 50 to 60 years old, balding, with white stubble on his head and wearing sunglasses. He may also have a dark mark on his left temple.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lambton OPP.
