Letter sent home to parents


Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Police are asking parents to talk to their kids about stranger danger, after a suspect approached students near Linden Lanes School on Tuesday.

School officials sent a letter home with students, saying a man came up to students before school and showed an inappropriate image on an electronic device.

Brandon Police said they apprehended the 21-year-old Brandon man later that morning.

According to Sgt. Jeff Hoad, the man was intoxicated and was arrested.

Hoad says the incident is very worrisome.

"We don't get these calls very often," said Hoad. "But when we do, we appreciated getting the information quickly."

The man will appear in court on Wednesday.
