Police are looking to identify a man and a girl who visited a horse stable in Lawrencetown in connection with an investigation into a “suspicious circumstance.”

Nova Scotia RCMP say an older man and a girl between the ages of seven and 10 arrived at the stable in a van at around 6 p.m. on Friday.

Police say the girl walked around the stables and spoke with staff while the man stayed in the van.

“After speaking with staff, the girl returned to the van,” police said in a news release Wednesday.

“Staff approached the van and asked the man to leave. The vehicle then left the area.”
