Police are investigating after a report on Saturday that a man tried to lure a 12-year-old boy into a van in Calabogie.

Just before 5:30 p.m. the OPP responded after it was reported the boy was playing with his cousin, and they began to bike home, taking separate routes. He was on his bike on Mill Street near the Community Centre when a van started up, startling him.

The male driver opened the door of the van, telling the boy to “come here.”

When the boy refused, the man walked towards him and put his hand on the boy’s shoulder. The boy took off and was followed by the van for a short time.

The suspect is described as a male … 5-foot-10 to 6-feet in height … and skinny. He was dressed in black … and wore a black ski mask. The van was black … had tinted windows … and no licence plates.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
