Police warning after attempted abduction

A warning from police for parents to be extra vigilant after reports of an attempted child abduction in West Bay.

Police said they received a report from a member of the public saying a man in a two seater blue van tried to pick up a young boy as he walked home from a park on Thursday morning.

Detectives are investigating, but encouraged parents to remind their children of the dangers of accepting rides from strangers.

A spokeswoman for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said: “The R.C.I.P.S. is asking that parents to remind their children, not to accept rides or gifts from strangers, and to inform them immediately of any such attempts.  Also, the police are asking that any similar incidents and sighting be reported to the police.”

Anyone with information about the attempted abduction is asked to contact police on 949-4222.
