Stranger Danger - Safe Exercising

Helena from Greenlane

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.
