Police investigate another suspicious circumstance with burgundy vehicle

Today Delta Police received another report of suspicious behaviour, associated to the driver of a burgundy vehicle.

A teenage girl reported that at approximately 9:15 am an older man in driving a burgundy car stopped his vehicle near 11 A Avenue and 52A Street in Tsawwassen. The driver stepped out of his vehicle and asked the girl what she was doing and where she was going.

The girl reported that she ignored the man, and continued on her way. The information was reported to police later that same day, Oct. 28.

Delta Police had a similar incident reported on October 15, around 8 am, in the 1200 block of 52nd Street. A possible linked incident was reported on October 19, where a teenage girl stated a red or burgundy vehicle made a slow u-turn nearby her. In that instance nothing was said to the girl.

“The reported behaviour of the driver is concerning. Police are actively investigating these incidents, and are stepping up patrols in the area,” says Cris Leykauf, spokesperson for Delta Police. She notes the Investigations Bureau has assumed oversight.

She says while police are canvassing homes in the area, anyone with dash cam who was in the area at that time, or who may have further information, is asked to contact the non-emergency line at 604-946-4411.

“We’re also encouraging teens or youths in the area to walk in groups if possible, carry a cell phone and to call 9-1-1 if they see any suspicious behaviour.”
