Man behind suspicious activity at Oliver elementary school ID'd

Man ID'd in stranger danger

RCMP in Oliver say they have positively identified the man behind a suspicious incident Wednesday in which the man asked three young students if they wanted to see his puppy, sparking concerns from parents that it was a kidnapping attempt.

Sen Pok Chin Elementary School sent out a warning to parents about the incident. 

Police have not released the name of the man because they are satisfied through discussion with him and other witnesses that his intentions were "not criminal in nature."

"Oliver RCMP would like to thank the man for his courage to come forward and help set the minds of parents in the community at ease", said Sgt Jason Bayda.

"RCMP also wish to commend the children for their courage to do the right thing and the complainant for reporting the circumstances to police."
