Important Bulletin - Man attempts to lure child, Peacekeepers ask for vigilance


The Kahnawake Mohawk Peacekeepers are asking the community to remain vigilant after an incident that occurred yesterday (Thursday) afternoon.

At approximately 3:35pm yesterday, the Peacekeepers received a call from a local person reporting that his granddaughter, who had just disembarked from her school bus, was called over to vehicle by a man offering her candy.

Upon arrival to the residence, the officer responding spoke to the 8-year-old child. He was advised that she got off the bus at the corner of Cemetery and North Creek roads. When the child began to walk home, she stated that the non-local male had rolled down his window and asked her if she wanted a lollipop. The girl immediately ran home and informed her grandfather, who then contacted the Peacekeepers.

When asked, the girl stated that the vehicle resembled the vehicle the responding officer was driving, which was a Dodge Charger. It was described as gray in color, with rust at the bottom and paint chipped off. The girl also recalled that the vehicle had a Boston sticker on the rear passenger door on the driver’s side.

The suspect was described as a non-local, either bald or having short hair, with a trimmed beard. He was wearing a white shirt. Patrols were immediately dispatched when the call was received and searched the area without success. The vehicle was said to have left the scene in the direction of the cemetery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Peacekeepers immediately at 450-632-6505. Additionally, parents are asked to always remind children to not speak to strangers and to be careful at all times.
