Lac La Biche RCMP says they are on the lookout after an attempted case of child luring. Police say it happened on Tuesday evening at around 8 pm.
A child was walking near 102 Avenue in the hamlet of Plamondon when he says he was approached by a man in a vehicle and asked if he wanted a chocolate bar. The boy resisted and ran home. The police were then notified.
The suspect was wearing black clothes and driving a newer black SUV or pickup with a canopy. Mounties say they’re still investigating. Tips on the crime can be submitted to the Lac La Biche RCMP detachment at 780-404-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
