The RCMP are asking the public to be vigilant after a four-year-old boy was approached by an unknown male outside their home on the 2700 block of Cheakamus Way. The incident occurred shortly after noon on Tuesday, Feb. 28.

According to the report, a man in a blue truck drove up while the boy was playing in the yard and said something like, "Son, come with me. We're going to Kindergarten." The boy didn't respond and the man left. When the boy later went inside he told his parents about the incident.

The RCMP don't have many details, other than the boy's memory of an adult male in a blue truck with a black dog. The boy did not recognize the male or the truck from the neighbourhood.

The RCMP stress that they have not received any similar reports lately, but are sharing this file with the public to make residents aware. If anyone has any information, please contact the RCMP at 604-932-3044.
