Sooke RCMP are looking for information after a suspicious and disturbing incident this weekend.
A man approached two groups of young children and offered them candy.
It happened between 1:15 and 1:45 Saturday afternoon on Steeplechase Road.
Police say two groups of children between the ages of 5 and 10, were approached by a man in a truck and given red licorice.
The man is between 40 and 60 years old, bald with grey stubble, bad teeth and two large tattoos on his right arm.
He was driving a newer model white ford work truck with a metal rack and construction material in the back.
Police want to speak with the man, but won’t comment further on whether he made any attempts to lure the children.
