A 16-year-old Bowmanville teenager reported she was chased by an unknown male after stopping to help him with directions.

On Saturday, November 25, 2017 at approximately 9:40 p.m., a 16-year-old Bowmanville female was walking north on Mearns Avenue on the west side of the road. Just south of Guildwood Drive, a small black car travelling southbound pulled over to the side of the road. She heard the driver say "directions" and turned around to face the vehicle. An unknown male exited the passenger side of the vehicle and started to chase her.

She ran southbound and made it to a convenience store where a citizen assisted her. The suspect vehicle never went past her.

The vehicle is described as a small, old black car with tinted windows and yellow headlights.

Anyone with information that can help identify these two males is asked to contact East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1606.
