    Calgary school asks parents to arrange pickups after 3 reported luring attempts in 6 days
    Police initially sent out a release June 23, after a man in his vehicle allegedly approached a school-aged girl walking in Braeside in his vehicle. Police said he rolled down the window and told her to get in.

    When she refused and continued walking, the girl told police the man continued to talk to her, telling her not to ignore him. The man continued yelling at her as the girl ran away, police said.
    That suspect is described as being in his 30s or 40s and was wearing a ball cap at the time of the incident. The vehicle is described as an older-model, dark-coloured four-door sedan with tinted windows.
    On June 28, another letter was sent to St. Cyril parents after a third luring attempt in the area. The school said a 14-year-old student walking home alone at around noon on Oakfield Drive near 24 Street S.W. was approached by a black, four-door, older model sedan with “rust around the wheel wells.”

    “She described the suspect as a white male with blonde hair, possibly in his 30s,” reads the letter. “He called out to the student and she ran into a nearby Mac’s store.
    Calgary police sent a statement Thursday saying “a number of possible child lurings” had been reported in the past week and are currently under investigation.

    “We do know they’re not connected in any way,” Staff Sgt. Ralph Veckenstedt told Global News. “Over the past year, we’ve had about 20 similar incidents, and those range from somebody driving up and online luring and people approaching kids on the side of the road.”
