Hamilton student allegedly followed by man twice in as many weeks
Hamilton police are reminding students to walk in pairs after an 11-year-old student at Billy Green Elementary School claims she was followed by a man, while walking home from school on two separate occasions.
Police say the girl was walking home alone from school on Monday, April 8, when she noticed the man following her, so she ran home and didn’t report the incident until she spotted the man following her again the next week (Monday, April 15).
The girl ran to school and told staff what happened, but police say the man never approached or talked to the student.
