Men reportedly attempt to take young boys

Red Deer RCMP investigate attempted child luring

Red Deer RCMP are investigating a report of attempted child luring.

Shortly after 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 21st, RCMP received a report that two men in a truck had attempted to convince several young boys to get into the truck, using a promise of a new bike. The boys ran away and immediately told an adult, who called police.

The boys encountered the truck as it moved through the parking lot of an apartment building in the area of 42nd St. and 54th Ave. Witnesses described the truck as a large Ford F550, either dark blue or black, and very dirty. No descriptions were obtained of the two male suspects.

RCMP made extensive patrols of the area but did not locate the suspect truck. Police commend the boys for refusing to approach the truck and for instead running to safe adults, and remind parents and caregivers of the importance of educating children about safety.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
