Merritt RCMP have arrested a 31-year-old male from Squamish in connection with several incidents where a male asked young women for directions and then asked them to get into his vehicle.

Const. Tracy Dunsmore said police arrested him Friday afternoon with a warrant from a community-safety peace bond and were holding him in custody.

Earlier in the week, police warned residents about a man driving a green vehicle who had approached young women in Merritt on four different occasions. The most recent incident occurred on Monday.
