KOTA KINABALU: Police here are on the hunt for a man who intruded twice into a primary school earlier this week to offer sweets to a Year Four pupil.
The school authorities have lodged a police report against the unidentified man who trespassed into the school on Monday (Sept 26) and Tuesday (Sept 27) to offer the sweets.
The pupil, who says she does not know the suspect, refused to accept the sweets.
In the first trespass, the man had entered the school's female toilet on Monday where he offered sweets before running off.
On the next day, a pupil spotted the suspect standing near the school's staircase and immediately raised the alarm.
It is learnt that the suspect fled towards the boy's toilet and escaped.
Kota Kinabalu City police chief Asst Comm Mohd Zaidi Abdullah said Friday (Sept 30) that police have yet to identify the suspect and investigations are underway after the school authorities lodged a report at the Inanam police station here.
"We have also increased patrols in the area," he said.
Investigations are being carried for criminal trespass under Section 447 of the Penal Code, he added.
