The incident happened near West 33rd Avenue and Marguerite Street around 3:30 p.m. PT, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

Officers met with the girl minutes after the incident was reported, and additional resources were brought in to patrol the area.

Police say the suspect was not located and the investigation is ongoing.
