Whitehorse RCMP are investigating a report of an attempted abduction of a 13-year-old girl from an alley between 3rd and 4th Avenue, behind Staples.

The incident is alleged to have occurred around 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 3, police say.

The girl said she was approached by a man in a newer grey or turquoise sedan of an unknown make or model. She said the man tried to talk to her, and reached out toward her from his vehicle. She said he then followed her for a short distance, but left when she took out her phone to call for help.

The suspect is described as an older male with a dark complexion and a white beard. He was wearing a baggy V-neck shirt with sleeves and loose, tan-coloured, baggy pants.

The girl didn’t recognize him.

Whitehorse RCMP are asking anyone with information to call them at 867-667-5551.
