Kamloops RCMP seek witnesses to 2 reports involving man chasing children

The Kamloops RCMP are looking to speak with witnesses of two recent reports of a man chasing children in a park.

The detachment says they were contacted around 5:30 pm on May 13 with a report of a man who allegedly “came out of the bushes” and taunted a group of children.

He then chased them away on their bikes in Albert Mcgowan Park on Summit Drive, a news release says.

A similar report was received on April 16, around 6:20 pm.

Police say the man appeared to be with a woman who was nearby.

“The Kamloops RCMP Detachment is looking to speak with the man, the woman he was with, or someone who may know him, to discuss the report and help further the investigation,” said Cpl. Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP Detachment spokesperson.

The man was described as Caucasian, 40-50 years old, heavyset, “with a pronounced lower lip,” balding, and wearing a grey or black shirt and grey shorts.

According to the release, the woman was described as Caucasian with salt and pepper hair styled in a bun, wearing a coral shirt.

Those with information are asked to call the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at (250) 828-3000 and reference file 2024-14277.
