BURNABY (NEWS 1130) — A 15-year-old girl in Burnaby was not hurt, but is likely shaken after a suspicious man apparently lunged at her outside Cariboo Hill Secondary School.

Mounties say the man apparently tried to speak to the girl about whether school was over for the summer, then lunged at her after she ran away from him. He didn’t make physical contact with her.
