The Calgary Police announced Saturday that an investigation is underway into possible child luring attempts which reportedly took place during the recent days in the city.
“We are investigating reports of four possible child luring attempts in #yyc that have occurred since Wednesday. While we continue to investigate the details surrounding these incidents, given the seriousness of the allegations, this info is being shared with the public,” the Calgary Police said in a statement.
The statement further added “We have assigned multiple resources from across the Service to investigate each incident, and officers have reviewed a significant amount of CCTV from each area. While we continue to investigate the details surrounding these incidents, given the seriousness of the allegations and out of an abundance of caution, this information is being shared with the public. Our officers have also increased patrols in these areas following the incidents.”
At this time, there are no similarities in suspect descriptions and no additional evidence to believe that these reports are connected, the Calgary Police said, adding that officers are working hard to identify possible suspects for the Windsor Park, Forest Lawn and Copperfield incidents by continuing to review CCTV images and speaking to witnesses.
“These reports are extremely concerning to us and to all of Calgary,” says Staff Sergeant Kurt Jacobs of the District 1 General Investigations Unit. “Calgarians deserve to feel safe in their communities, and we have dedicated our resources to investigating each allegation thoroughly.”
Anyone with information about these incidents, or any suspicious activity, should contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Anyone in immediate danger or witnessing a crime-in-progress should call 9-1-1, the Calgary Police said.
