The unknown male was initially observed by the victim in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant on Alaska Avenue in Dawson Creek at approximately 12:30 AM.
The man was seen getting into his vehicle after which he followed the victim until she parked at an apartment building on 3rd Avenue.
The male was then viewed to exit his vehicle and approach the victim; while still in her vehicle, during which he identified himself as “Constable Parker” and informed that he was a RCMP officer. The male directed that the victim provide her driver’s license and registration.
