Police investigating suspicious incident near Colonial Heights daycare

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Police are investigating a suspicious incident that happened near a daycare Tuesday night in Colonial Heights.

Police say the incident happened around 8 p.m on Hamilton and Dick Ewell avenues, located near Minnieland Academy.

Police and neighbors say a 13-year-old boy approached by two men in a white van. The men asked the boy if he knew the dog that was inside their truck. After a brief exchange, the boy ran away down this street, towards home. Once he got home  he told his dad about what happened, who called police.

Officers say they are investigating. They have not located the van, and they are not calling it an abduction attempt. However, they are saying it's suspicious. A very similar incident happened in Colonial Heights back in March.

Police urge anyone with information to call them at 804-520-9300.
