Police are looking for information about a possible child-luring attempt they believe happened on Monday.
According to a press release sent out yesterday, a 9-year old girl was walking on the sidewalk in the 3800 block of China Creek Rd around 7 pm when a man approached her and asked if she wanted to go for a walk with him.
The girl said no, and went to a house to report the incident to an adult.
Police searched the area for a caucasian man in his 20’s, described as being 5’9″ with short strawberry blond hair, an average build and pale complexion.
Port Alberni RCMP Corporal Amelia Hayden says the young girl did the right thing by keeping herself safe, and it’s also a reminder to talk to your children about stranger danger.
