Halifax District RCMP is investigating two incidents in Lower Sackville of men approaching and asking children to come with them.

On June 4 just after 11 a.m., RCMP officers of the Lower Sackville detachment responded to a report of an unknown man approaching a junior high school student.

The man had asked the student to come with him but eventually left as the child said no.

On the same day just before 8 p.m., the Lower Sackville RCMP detachment received a report of another man who had approached two children at a park near Westpoint Drive in Lucasville.

The man tried to get the children to come with him but the children left the park and told a parent.

In both incidents, officers patrolled the area but couldn't locate the men.

The first man is described as being in his 20s, bearded, with tanned skin, dark hair in a bun and a blue or purple streak in his hair. He was wearing a black face mask, a black hoodie and pants with flame details.

The second man is described as being around 30-years-old. He was wearing a black beret, a black coat and blue jeans.

The RCMP says the two incidents are being investigated and that it currently doesn't believe they're linked.

"Halifax District RCMP would like to speak to these two persons of interest regarding the circumstances of the interactions," a news release says.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact the Halifax District RCMP at 902-490-5020. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at, or use the P3 Tips App.
