RCMP in Kelowna are investigating a possible child luring incident.
A nine year old boy was walking along Baron Road Thursday afternoon when a female driver, described as wearing a white sweater and driving a dirty white minivan, offered him a ride.
The woman then reportedly offered the boy a toy but the child declined and continued his walk home.
Police conducted patrols but were unable to locate a similar vehicle with anyone matching the description.
Police continue to investigate and are asking the female driver to contact RCMP in order to clarify her actions and hopefully shed some light on this reported incident.
“The child’s actions in this situation were prudent and commended,” says Cpl. Jesse O’ Donaghey. “RCMP are reminding parents to discuss personal awareness and safety strategies with their children.”
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at (250) 762-3300 or call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477.
