Police are now calling previous reports of a possible child abduction attempt in High Park last weekend ‘a misunderstanding.’
On Tuesday, police had appealed for information in tracking down a person of interest following reports of an ”altercation” between a father and his child and a woman at the castle playground area on the afternoon of Saturday, March 12th.
However, according to police it has been determined, following an investigation, that there was no child abduction.
They say there was a misunderstanding and this investigation is now resolved.
Nevertheless, police are taking this opportunity to remind parents to remain vigilant with their children in public settings and to encourage the public to continue to co-operate with the police, as they say they have done in this situation.
