Teen stalked in North Delta by man in van

14-year-old girl followed near 84 Avenue and 114 Street.

A 14-year-old girl was confronted by a man in a van on Monday.

Delta Police say the teen was walking east on 84 Avenue near 114 Street at about 12:45 p.m. when she passed a van parked by the side of the road. After the girl passed, the driver moved the vehicle forward a short distance and stopped. He did this twice.

The driver then got out of the van and began running toward the teen. The girl yelled and made a kicking motion toward the man, and eventually, he turned back to his vehicle, driving away westbound on 84 Avenue.

The girl was not physically harmed, but was extremely upset by the incident.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male between 35 and 45 years old. He is about 6′, thin to medium built with short, light brown hair. He was wearing a plain dark grey T-shirt and black work pants with paint stains on them.

The van is silver with yellow lettering on the side. It had a ladder on the roof, tinted windows and possibly a graphic of a blue ant on the side.

Delta Police are reminding the public to take the following precautions:

• Walk in small groups;

• Walk in high traffic areas;

• Draw attention to yourself if approached by a stranger;

• Change your direction and go to the nearest safe place (store, school, police station) if you believe you are being followed;

• Be familiar with your surroundings;

• Carry a cellphone with you if possible.

Anyone with information about the incident can call the Delta Police 604-946-4411.
