Between approximately 8:05 and 8:30 am on December 3, 2020 a boy was allegedly offered a candy by a male driving a white van. The boy was on his way to school and was in a laneway near the 10400 block of Seacote Road when it took place.

The boy did not engage the male and immediately left the area, heading to school. He reported this incident to school officials who contacted police.

This boy did exactly what he should have. He stayed away from the vehicle, got himself to a safe place and reported it, says Corporal Adriana Peralta, We want to remind parents of the importance of talking to your children about strangers.
