He didn’t give me his friend’s name . I tried different questions to get his friend’s name but he didnt give me a name. He said he didn’t have his phone on him to call his friend and the phone was in his van / car.

The guy was , wheatish complexion , wearing all black clothes & jacket with a black & white bandana on his head , black beard and only speaking in Punjabi or Hindi.
