Possible child luring at David Thompson Elementary

Kamloops RCMP is looking for a man who allegedly tried to lure an 11-year-old girl in front of David Thompson Elementary School.

The incident happened between 2:30 p.m. and 2:50 p.m. on Monday, the girl was waiting in front of the school when the suspect approached her and said he was there to pick her up.

The young girl challenged him by asking what her mom’s name was, which the male was unable to provide.

The male then said he worked with her dad and had been asked to pick her up, but was unable to provide the girl’s dad’s name either.

Following that, the male walked away without ever touching or making attempts to grab the student.

He walked to an older dark burgundy Chevrolet truck with two doors and extra seats in the back.
