Last night, my teenage daughter was followed by a single male (dark complexion & accent) in a car (white new-ish Tesla) and approached on Walpole St in Ellerslie just before dark/9pm. (NOT an Uber) While walking our block.
She saw him drive by, turn & drive past again slowly, then circle around, and he stopped to say:
Do you need a ride somewhere? Sure I can't give you a ride? & insisting...
She bolted up the highway, hid and then ran around the corner home.
We've reported the incident & posting this just for local awareness & as a reminder (especially for our kids) to be careful out there.
When we polish furniture, most times we take the items apart in order to get an even finish! Down to the buttons 😊
