Ucluelet Elementary student says they were chased to school Friday morning

“He was chased to school and then reported it to the teacher.”

Ucluelet police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a person who might have chased a Ucluelet Elementary School student Friday morning.

“[The student] was walking to school this morning and he’s saying that he was chased by an unknown person with blue jeans and a black jacket,” said Sgt. Steve Mancini of the Ucluelet RCMP. “He was chased to school and then reported it to the teacher.”

Mancini said the person did not say anything to the student and that the student reached the school before the person reached them. The student was unable to confirm the gender or age of the person.

“We’re asking if anybody witnessed this, or saw anything, to let us know as well as asking local people to be vigilant; if there’s any suspicious people that they’re seeing in the area to give us a call and report it to the RCMP,” Mancini said.

The Ucluelet RCMP can be reached at 250-726-7773.
