Police patrols have been stepped up in Deganwy after two men approached a schoolboy on his way to school.
The men got out of a silver car on Plas Newydd at around 8.50am on Monday morning and asked the nine year-old to get into their vehicle – but the pupil ignored them and reported what happened to staff when he arrived at school unharmed.
Police said the men did not try to physically get hold of the boy and did not attempt to pursue him. But hi-vis patrols were stepped up around the area on Tuesday morning in an effort to reassure the community. The boy is being interviewed by police to try and establish a full description of the two men.
Inspector Kelly Issacs at Llandudno police station said: ”This incident will understandably be of significant concern to the local community and particularly parents and other local schools…I’d like to personally reassure the community that everything possible is being done and increased patrols and a Police presence will continue particularly around school times.”
Anyone with information should contact Llandudno police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, quoting reference no. RC17007107.
