  • Case of attempted child luring by unknown male who approached a Chilliwack child waiting for their school bus

Investigation continues into an attempting child luring after an unknown male suspect approached a young child in Chilliwack on Wednesday morning.

The man approached the child on foot and propositioned them on a date. During the conversation, the suspect requested that they keep their meeting a secret. The suspect then departed on foot.

This is a very concerning incident, says Sgt.

The child did the right thing by running to tell their siblings who immediately alerted their parents.

At the time of the incident, the suspect was wearing jeans, a light black windbreaker with hood up, blue and white paper medical mask, knee high rubber boots, and was holding a blue and yellow Ikea umbrella.

This incident remains under investigation by the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Section who are looking to speak with anyone who may have any information related to this case.
