B.C. boy followed and chased by two men

Langley 13-year-old was out walking his dog when incident occurred

Langley RCMP are investigating after a 13-year-old boy was allegedly followed by two men and then chased in Brookswood Wednesday evening.

Police said around 6 p.m., the teen was walking his dog when he said two men in a white car started following him near 206 Street and 42 Avenue.

One man allegedly got out of the vehicle and asked the 13-year-old to ‘come here.’ The boy ignored him and kept walking.

It’s alleged the man then asked the boy to come over so he could ‘show him something.’ When the boy told him to go away and started to run, the suspicious man reportedly chased him.

The boy made it home safe and immediately told his parents. They reported it to police.

Langley RCMP said they were given a description of the men and will have more information as they continue to investigate.

The man who chased the boy is described as Caucasian, 5’7” tall, with a moustache, black toque and black jacket.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
