A suspicious man approached two students at a Burlington elementary school and Halton police are asking the public to help identify him.
The incident took place on June 27 at Bruce T. Lindley Public School at 5:15 p.m. while an after-school program was running.
That’s near Cavendish Dr. and Conventry Way.
The suspect drove a Chevrolet Uplander into the school parking lot and got out of the minivan.

The man began playing with a remote control car, catching the eye of two nearby students.
“As a result, a conversation ensued between the male and the two students,” reads a news release issued by police on Wednesday.
Staff saw what was happening and began heading over but the man quickly got into the minivan and drove off.
“At this point, no criminal act has been identified,” say police.
But they’d like to find the truck and identify the driver.
The truck is described as a 2005-2009 beige Chevrolet Uplander, with the licence plate ending with ‘324.’
The driver is described as white, between 40 and 50, with a medium to heavy build. He has shoulder-length salt-and-pepper hair.
Police are reminding parents and guardians to educate their children on stranger danger and to report any suspicious activity to police.
UPDATE: The driver of the vehicle contacted police. Investigators are now saying nothing inappropriate happened during the interaction between the driver and the boys in the parking lot.
