Peel Regional Police say a 19-year-old man has been charged in connection with an alleged abduction attempt at a Brampton daycare.

Police said in a statement Thursday afternoon that the suspect went to the daycare facility, located near Kennedy Road North and Bovaird Drive West, at around 4:50 p.m. on Monday.

Officers said the accused followed a delivery driver through two locked access doors and into the daycare.

When the suspect exited a washroom, he was asked for identification. Police said he told staff he was there to pick up a relative and that he left his identification in his vehicle.

Officers said staff called the child’s mother for confirmation. They said the man is unknown to her. The man was seen leaving less than 15 minutes after he entered the daycare. Officers said he went north on Kennedy Road North.
