Chase RCMP were called to Haldane Elementary after an intoxicated man entered the school claiming he was being chased by an assailant.
Cpl. Scott Linklater said police responded to the Feb. 28 report from the school, which had enacted lockdown procedures to ensure the safety of the students.
“Police attended and shortly thereafter determined the alleged assailant was not present in the area,” reports Linklater.
The man was then taken from the school, said Linlater, adding at no time were threats made towards the students.
