The Bancroft O.P.P. is looking for a suspicious person in the Cardiff area.

According to police, an unknown male approached a child and offered a ride sometime on Monday evening.

The man is described as having a dark complexion, between 30 and 50 years old.

The detachment also says he was wearing a black sweater, a ball cap and driving an old black and dirty car.

The O.P.P. wants to remind parents to talk to their children about never accepting rides from strangers.
