Police are hoping tips from the public will help them find a “suspicious person” who showed an indecent photo to a child on Saturday.

Lethbridge Police said they got reports of a vehicle that pulled up beside three children in an alley along the 1100 block of Henderson Lake Boulevard South about 5:45 p.m.

It’s alleged the man told the kids he had lost his cat and wanted to show them a photo of it.

“He proceeded to show a 12-year-old girl a sexually explicit image before driving away,” an LPS statement read.
