Langley RCMP investigate luring attempt

Police searched for the man who allegedly approached a young boy near his school.

Langley RCMP patrolled Langley Meadows after an apparent attempted child luring on Friday afternoon.

At 1:49 p.m., an eight-year-old boy was walking through the park near the school, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The boy was approached by a man who said that the boy’s mother had sent him to pick up the child.

The boy ran away back to the school and stayed there until his mom came to get him.

The man is described as non-Caucasian, wearing a black hoodie with the hood up and black gloves.

Patrols in the area could not find the man, Largy said.

Anyone with information can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
