Police in Midlothian are appealing for witnesses following an 11 year old being offered an unknown substance in Bonnyrigg.

The incident happened around 6pm on Saturday 21 March in King George V Park when two unknown teenagers offered an 11-year-old boy what they claimed to be a sweet.

The item was in a wrapper and was white with a smiley face on it.

The men are described as approximately 18-years-old and were wearing dark clothing.

Inspector Bryan Burns said:

“We’re appealing to all children and young people to be aware of the dangers of excepting anything of this nature from people you don’t know, and to contact police, a parent or guardian as soon as possible if you are ever approached in a similar manner.

“We’re also appealing for any witnesses who can help us with our enquiries to come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
