An incident Wednesday (Feb. 22, 2017) in which a man approached students from Arthur Stevenson elementary as they walked home from school wasn’t suspicious after all.
Yesterday, Kamloops RCMP reported that two elementary age girls had been approached by a man who spoke to them and then reached towards them. A warning was sent out to parents to talk to their kids about how to deal with strangers.
Today, police are saying further investigation showed that the man was greeting other students nearby who knew him.
“All parties involved were identified and it was confirmed that they knew each other,” said Cpl. Jodie Shelkie.
“The exchange between the male and the children was confirmed as not be suspicious.”
