A man offering candy approached a student walking home from G.R. Saunders Elementary School last week.

The student was walking on Bridge Street on June 12th when the man approached them.

The student immediately returned to school and reported the incident, police were notified and a letter was sent home to parents.

“I am sending this note home not to alarm, but to remind the members of the G.R. Saunders community that it is always important to be aware of our surroundings,” Principal Brian MacIsaac stated in a letter that was sent home.

Stellarton Police Chief Don Hussher said police are continuing to investigate the incident. Anyone with information can call the department at 752-6160.

    Parents need to be aware of things like this when they happen...all parents at all schools. A few weeks ago a young trenton boy was approached by a grey truck at 8:00am...on his way to trenton middle school. The boy didn't know the man and woman in the truck and he said no and ran...when he got to the school he reported it to the principal and nothing was done. There were 3 other witnesses. The parents weren't called the police weren't called. Atleast not until the child went home afterschool and the boy told his parents and they called the police. When things like this happen it needs to be taken seriously. We teach our kids to tell an adult when something ljke this happens...what kind of message are we sending when that adult in authority does nothing about it...and doesn't take it setiously. Just glad the boy was smart enough not to get in the truck. Hopefully the word is passed on so it doesn't happen to a more vulnerable child.
