The past few weeks there have been several reports of attempted abductions of children in Victoria BC and surrounding areas. On Wednesday June 27, 2012 a 10-year-old girl was approached by a man who asked her for help and to accompany him to his van. Thank goodness the girl did not fall for this ploy and instead ran to a nearby family member. The incident was reported to the Victoria Police. We need to remind our children of the trickery that kidnappers will use to lure them into danger.
