There have been several complaints from concerned parents and citizens about incidents of suspicious males who tried to lure young children into their vehicles.

Last Friday, a class 2 minor was approached by a male stranger, trying to convince the child to get into his vehicle.

Police said an adult who knew the child was nearby, and prevented any unwanted result from the situation.
