Shortly before 11:30 am on November 15th, 2017, Richmond RCMP officers responded to a field near Whiteside Elementary School to investigate a suspicious incident where a 10-year old student was allegedly grabbed on her arm by a male in his 40s or 50s.

This male was allegedly photographing the area with his cell phone prior to this occurring. The student was running a lap near the field directly south of Whiteside Elementary School. As she was running towards the male, he allegedly grabbed her on the arm.
