North Wales Police deployed extra ‘high vis’ patrols in the Deganwy area this morning following an incident on Monday when a nine-year-old was approached by two men.
At approximately 8.50am yesterday on Monday, January 16, the pupil was walking to school along Plas Newydd, Deganwy when a silver car stopped and two men got out and asked him to get into the car.
The pupil ignored the men’s request and continued to school where later that morning he reported the incident to staff. The men made no attempt to physically get hold of the pupil nor did they pursue him to school and he was fortunately unharmed.
Local Inspector Kelly Isaacs at Llandudno Police Station said. “This incident will understandably be of significant concern to the local community and particularly parents and other local schools.
"Enquiries are underway to establish the identity of the men and car and the pupil is being further interviewed by specialist officers to obtain a full description of the men and I would ask anyone who can assist to contact Police immediately.
"In the meantime 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”
The incident took place approximately 8.50am Monday, January 16 in Plas Newydd (which leads into Pentwyn Road), Deganwy.
