Another Case of a Man Trying to Lure Child into Car

The principals of the Seltjarnarnes Elementary School and Melaskóli in western Reykjavík sent a letter to their students’ parents yesterday, informing them of a man who had tried to lure a young girl into his car at the intersection of Neshagi and Hofsvallagata on Tuesday evening.

According to the girl’s description, the police believe this may be the same man who has attempted to lure children into cars in Hafnarfjördur and Keflavík recently, Morgunbladid reports.

However, descriptions in recent reports vary: in Hafnarfjördur the man was said to be driving an old, blue car and in Keflavík a white jeep. This time, the car was described as green.

The perpetrator offered the girl candy but she cycled straight home and notified her parents, who contacted the police. Parents are asked to discuss with their children how to react in such situations.
