Red Deer RCMP are commending two boys for avoiding a potentially dangerous situation.
It was around 4:30 p.m. Monday afternoon when police got a report of two men in a truck trying to convince a number of young boys to get in, using the promise of a new bike. The boys ran away, told an adult in the area who called police.
Officers canvassed the area in and around 42nd Street and 54th Avenue and couldn’t track down the truck. It’s described as a Ford F-550, either dark blue or black and very dirty.
Mounties feel this is a good time for parents to remind their kids about safety and about who and who not to trust.
Anyone who may have seen something is being asked to call police or Crime Stoppers. (bw)
