Cochrane RCMP is investigating a report of child luring in Bragg Creek.
On Sept. 19 around 4 p.m., an 11-year-old girl was walking in the area of White Avenue in the small town south of Cochrane. Police say a man in his 50s or 60s pulled up onto the grass next to her in a grey Dodge Ram and tried to lure her into his vehicle.
“From inside the pickup truck, the male spoke to the 11-year-old female in what is believed to have been an attempt to lure her into his vehicle,” said Cpl. Deanna Fontaine, media relations officer for Alberta RCMP, in a Tuesday morning statement.
The girl continued walking without interacting with the man and he drove away, police said.
The man is described as having a long beard and thinning, grey or brown short hair. He was wearing a blue t-shirt and sweatpants. The truck is a grey older model Dodge Ram with a dent in the driver’s side door.
