Red Deer RCMP have spoken to the man who approached a youth in the Deer Park area on Wednesday around 4 p.m. and are satisfied the youth was not in any danger.

After hearing news reports about the incident, the driver of the truck came forward to police to explain the circumstances of his brief interaction with the youth.

“(Wednesday’s) report came from a concerned bystander who saw a truck approach a youth then drive away. It came on the heels of an incident the day before, involving a truck and a young girl. That bystander did the right thing in calling police, and we are grateful for the public’s vigilance in ensuring the safety of our children,” says Constable Derek Turner of the Red Deer RCMP.

After further investigation, RCMP said that the incident in Deer Park was not of any concern.

RCMP are also satisfied that this incident is not related to the incident in Anders on Oct. 6 when a suspicious man tried to convince a young girl to get into his truck. RCMP continue to actively investigate that incident and will provide updates as more information comes available.
