The incident occurred at around 08:15 in the vicinity of Jellicoe Road and Broadway Crescent in Binstead.

Island Echo understands that when the 15-year-old was approached, the older male asked the teen if he was lonely and suggested they go to the nearby shop and get some sweets.

“Enquiries are ongoing to establish what happened and whether any offences were committed”.
So if what was said to the boy is not an offence, will that mean it won’t be taken any further? Or will the said person be sought to establish what their intentions were?
I’m so glad the boy was able to get away.

The police are going to increase patrols? I thought Donna Jones had already funded some more police from her own funds? Oh yeah that’s right, alot are off sick with stress and mental health issues. If it was to do with anyone striking , the comments on here would be, sack the lot of them!

Sounds like he’s been watching the old public information films from the seventies ‘would you like some sweets’ surprised he didn’t drive a mk 2 cortina with danger written on it!

Well, the do gooders stopped the paedo hunters didn’t they, now we are left with the shit everywhere. They should be tagged but I suppose the do gooders would stop that too due to his human rights B/S. WHAT ABOUT OUR KIDS RIGHTS TO BE SAFE FROM THESE LOW LIFE DROSS?

I think serious questions need to be asked about the people who would cancel the pedophile hunting groups. Long gone are the days where they didn’t work within the law, 99% of them are an asset to the cause of eliminating pedos and work well with the police. Makes you wonder.
