Red Deer RCMP are investigating an incident that occurred Wednesday afternoon where a man in a truck approached a youth in the Deer Park area.

The incident occurred in the alley behind Duffield Avenue at approximately 4 p.m. when a truck containing one or two men approached a boy and spoke to him. The boy, who was approximately 13, rode away on his bike and an observer reported the incident to police.

The truck is described as black or dark, with tinted windows. No description of the driver is available at this time.

Police are working to locate the truck and the youth to investigate the incident further.

At this time, RCMP cannot confirm if these events are related to Tuesday’s incident in which a man attempted to convince a girl to get into a truck. RCMP urge parents and caretakers to educate their children to stay away from strangers and to report any suspicious activity to police immediately.

RCMP ask anyone with information regarding these incidents to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online.
