The Mounties are investigating a second decoy incident in the city of Cochrane, which they say happened just four days after a similar report was reported this week.
Cochrane RCMP says that at about 3:40pm on June 2, two boys aged eight and 11 were walking in the community when a suspicious man driving a white van approached them.
“The youths were able to run and seek help from a parent,” police said, adding that the man was seen driving past Carolina Crescent.
He is described as:
- light-colored skin;
- Orange/red hair with a beard; and
- 40 to 50 years old.
Earlier this week, RCMP informed the public of a similar incident involving an 11-year-old girl who was approached by a man driving a van.
Police are asking anyone with information about the latest incident, including video surveillance or doorbell CCTV footage captured near Carolina Crescent, to contact them by calling 403-851-8000.
