Calgary Police are warning of an attempted child luring in the southern Calgary community of Walden.

On Monday (July 25) at around 3:20 p.m., a boy and his dog were approached by a man in a white van in front of the boy's home in Walden Mews S.E.

The suspect reportedly rolled down the passenger side window and told the boy to get in.

Instead, the boy picked up his dog, went back inside his house, and told his mother what had happened.

The man is described as 30 to 40 years old with light brown hair and a moustache, wearing a white shirt with a logo on the left side of the chest.

Police describe his vehicle as a mid-to-early 1990s Chevrolet Astro or GMC Safari van.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the police at (403) 266-1234.

Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stopper at 1 (800) 222-8477, online at, or on the P3 Tips app.
