The Lethbridge Police Service are looking into an incident where an unknown male approached a 12-year-old boy and grabbed onto his backpack.
At approximately 7:45 a.m. on January 26th the boy was walking east along the 1800 block of 14th Avenue South when he noticed a male walking towards him at a brisk pace. The boy turned around and began to return home and lost sight of the male.
The boy later resumed his walk to school when he was then confronted by the same male around 14th Avenue South near 18th Street South. The male in question then grabbed his backpack from behind, however the boy was able to pull away and run.
