Offering candy to a child is one of the oldest known lures used by child predators but it was being used again earlier this week by a man in Linden Woods.
Police say a man got out of his vehicle on Tuesday in the 300 block of Lindenwood Drive East and offered an 11-year-old boy candy.
The boy declined and began yelling for help. The suspect returned to his vehicle and left the area.
The man is decribed as a male caucasian who was about 50-years-old and about 6-feet tall with a medium build and short grey hair. He was wearing a dark jacket.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
