On October 06, 2010 at 0840 a.m. an 8-year old girl was approached by a man in the 200 block of 52A Street, near Pebble Hill Elementary School. The suspicious male stated he was a police officer but was not in uniform. He did however, present what appeared to be a badge. The man spoke with the young girl but no attempt was made to grab her or follow her.

The young girl did the right thing by listening to her instincts and continuing to walk toward the school. She didn't report this incident to school staff immediately and the young girl’s parent notified the school the following day. This prompted school staff to contact their School Liaison Officer.

At this time the Delta Police are unable to confirm whether in fact this man was a police officer. As a proactive and precautionary measure, a notice was sent home with elementary students of Pebble Hill School on Friday to make parents aware of this incident.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 5’8 to 5’9, 35 to 45-years old, clean cut, short hair, no facial hair, and average height and build wearing jeans and t-shirt. The male produced a gold or yellowish badge from inside a black wallet.

Police would like to remind all parents that it is recommended that if children are walking to school that they be accompanied by either an adult or in the company of others. Police would also encourage parents to discuss safety plans with their children with respect to strangers.
