Maidstone RCMP are seeking the public’s help after a suspicious man who was behind the wheel of a parked SUV in a residential area, reportedly offered chocolate to a couple youths as they walked by.

Police say on the morning of Friday November 26th, the two young people were walking in a residential area in Maidstone when the man whom they do not know made the alleged offer. They declined and continued walking.
