Chilliwack police have a chilling warning for kids and parents after two reports of someone trying to lure children in that community.
RCMP says the first incident happened nearly three weeks ago.
An 11 year old playing outside at dinner-time was offered candy by an older man in a red van.
She ran inside immediately.
Then this past Sunday at 3:30, police say an older man driving a white mini-van allegedly offered a 12 year old a ride.
She also ran away.
RCMP say they don’t yet know if the two incidents are related but want people to have their guard up and be on the lookout.
Suspect description from April 30: Older male with a long white beard, blue eyes, wearing black sweat pants, long black sleeved shirt and black toque, driving an older red van.
Suspect description from May 17: A male approximately 50 years old, wearing a long sleeve black shirt, long skinny dark brown beard, dark reddish brown cowboy hat, medium build, driving an older white mini-van.
