The police say an investigation has been launched into an incident purportedly involving a child in Portmore, St. Catherine.
In a voice note, which has been circulating via whatsapp, a girl who gives her age as 12 years old, explains that she was followed by a man driving a truck as she made her way home from school.
In the detailed account of what occurred, the child gives a description of the man, and the licence plate of the vehicle.
She said she first observed the truck as she stood at a bus stop.
At that time, the child said the man beckoned to her while speaking on a cellphone.
She saw the truck again after she alighted a taxi and was walking in her community.
This time the man struck up a conversation, indicating that he liked her and then suggested that the two of them should “get together”.
The child said the man then drove off.
In a release on Thursday, the Jamaica Constabulary Force Corporate Communication Unit said progress has already been made in the investigation.
