Surrey RCMP are alerting the public about a disturbing incident where a man allegedly tried to lure a group of children into his car.

The man allegedly pulled up to a group of six kids outside a housing complex in Clayton Heights on October 8 and asked them if they wanted photos outside and inside his vehicle, Cpl. Joanie Sidhu said.

He was driving a standard luxury sedan, Sidhu added, making the picture request even more strange.

The kids ran off to tell their parents, and the man drove away.

The incident happened just before 6 pm in the 19500 block of 66 Avenue. Police are still trying to identify the man, saying he’s described as Black and somewhere between 20 and 40 years old.

Anyone with information can contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
