Surrey RCMP is encouraging the public to report suspicious activity to police following a recent social media post circulating in the community of women being followed by a white van near Tamanawis Secondary and in the Panorama area.
The Surrey RCMP Special Victims Unit (SVU) was advised of the social media post and has reached out to the individual who posted it in order to seek more information. To date, SVU have not received any reported incidents of women being followed by men in a white van. The Surrey Crime Analysis Unit is doing a detailed search of police files to see whether any recent files match the information in the social media post.
“It is important that residents in our community report their concerns to police so they can be fully investigated,” says Constable Gurvinder Ghag, Surrey RCMP Media Relations Officer. “We have specially trained victim services caseworkers who can help witnesses and victims of crime, and walk them through the process of reporting to police.”
Anyone with information about suspicious activity in Surrey is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
