“The girls believed the male may have been attempting to touch them as he rode past.”

Police are looking to identify a man who rode an electric motorcycle through an East Trail tunnel while two young girls were walking through.

The Trail and Greater District RCMP received a report of a suspicious occurrence from a local parent guardian on Sunday, June 7, just before 5 p.m., began Sgt. Mike Wicentowich in his weekly news brief.

“Police have learned that a 10-year-old girl and an 11 year-old-girl were walking together through the Bailey Street tunnel when an unknown male seen riding an electric motorcycle rode by them with his hand outstretched,” he explained.

The unknown man is described as a Caucasian male in his 30’s, seen wearing a red, white, and black leather jacket and a helmet.

The electric motorcycle he was riding is reported to be red and white.
