A spokesperson for An Garda Siochana confirmed that Gardai in Ardee, Co Louth, are investigating an alleged suspicious approach that took place on Monday, January 25, after a nine-year-old boy was persuaded into a meeting over the online game Fortnite.

It is believed that a man approached the child in question through Fortnite, telling him that he would be banned from the game if he didn’t agree to a meeting.a clock on the side of a building: Gardai are investigating an alleged suspicious approach that took place on Monday after an attempt was reportedly made to groom a child online.

A meeting is understood to have been arranged, but a family member intervened after seeing the young boy approaching an unfamiliar car on Monday.

The car fled the scene once the boy was intercepted.

Garda investigations into the alleged incident are ongoing.
