Shawnigan Lake RCMP is advising the residents in the area of a suspicious occurrence.
It happened last Wednesday afternoon just before 3.
A girl, who was near the bus stop at Thain Road and Cobble Hill Road contacted the RCMP after a man pulled up in a car and offered her a ride home.
She declined the ride and the vehicle left, but not before turning around and driving past her one more time.
RCMP are hoping the public can help identify a suspect.
He is described as a white man, 30 to 40 years old with reddish/brown hair, a short beard and he was wearing a black baseball hat.
The vehicle is a red, older model sedan that may have had a burned out tail light and may have been missing a rear license plate.
