(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Another concerning incident has happened in the city regarding old men and children.
Dane McDowell explains what happened to his daughter yesterday “One of my daughters goes to Claude Garton french immersion public school. At some point yesterday a man was seen hanging around the school on a scooter.”
McDowell doesn’t believe it was Bewcyk, as he is in custody. but what happens next has McDowell reaching high levels of concern.
“He then proceeded to call my daughter over to the fence and gave her candy, which she gave to a supervisor. I’m told he left as teachers approached him.” McDowell tells us.
According to a school official, the school called the Thunder Bay Police Service right away, and they searched for the scooter man, but could not locate him.
The school community police officer had police cars search the area immediately, according to the school official, but they have not heard anything back from the police as of yet.
The school sent out a letter to all parents last night, to remind them to ensure their kids don’t accept rides or candy from strangers.
McDowell has some words of advice to share after going through this ordeal “It could be totally innocent and no harm meant at all, but in 2018 you simply cannot do that. Parents just talk to your kids and make sure they know that just because an adult tells you to ” come here ” does not mean you have to.”
“Make sure they know the difference between an adult who you listen to and ones you don’t. I thought I had done a good enough job teaching this but I guess I didn’t . Just be careful”
