SURREY — Police are looking for a woman who they suspect tried to lure a child in Vancouver before boarding SkyTrain and getting off in Surrey.

Vancouver Police are looking for witnesses to the “potential” luring of  12-year-old boy in an East Vancouver park on Sunday afternoon.

Police say the woman alleged to have tried to lure the boy out of the area was last scene getting off the SkyTrain at Surrey Central SkyTrain station roughly half an hour later, at about 2:30 p.m.

Police say the boy was playing in Melbourne Park, at Vanness Avenue near Melbourne Street, when the woman approached him. She left the park after another adult confronted her, police say.

She is described as white, five feet seven inches tall, 125 pounds with blonde hair in a ponytail and protruding front teeth. She was wearing a dark-coloured jacket, white tank top with red writing, faded blue jeans and was carrying a backpack with another jacket hanging off the side.
