Winnipeg police are looking for a man they say tried to persuade a 14-year-old girl to get into his van on Friday.

It happened around 1:30 p.m. when the girl was walking in the 200 block of Church Avenue in the city's North End. Police say a vehicle pulled up beside her and the driver, a man, asked if she would like a ride, which she refused.

The driver pulled away and was last seen heading west down Church Avenue.

He is described as 50 to 60 years old with a bald head and grey/black hair on the sides. Police say he has a short grey or white moustache and a goatee-style beard.

His vehicle is described as a beige van with the middle and rear windows tinted.

Anyone with information about what happened on Friday or the man's identity is asked to call investigators at 204-986-2848 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-8477.
