Chilliwack police are warning parents about a group of high school boys who have been trying to lure pre-teen girls via Facebook to parties where they would get them drunk and sleep with them.
They are called “LG” parties, which stands for “Little Girl” parties, said RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck.
“This is something that has recently come to our attention and we are trying hard to monitor,” Wolbeck said.
“The intent of these parties and the group mentality that goes along with them is what makes them very frightening for parents and police alike.”
It’s not the first time Facebook has been used recently by local teenage boys to try to lure younger girls.
Last week, RCMP in Surrey warned parents that Grade 11 and Grade 12 boys at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School in Cloverdale had started a Facebook page to seduce eighth-grade girls.
They called the group the “LGS Club” — the “Little Girl Slayers Club.”
“I can’t tie a definitive connection between what’s going on in the (two schools),” Wolbeck said.
“At this point we haven’t formally engaged in any investigation … We don’t have specific people or events to tie to it.”
Wolbeck said police are cautioning parents to be vigilant about where their teenagers are going and with whom.
She suggests if kids are heading to a party that parents call ahead to make sure there will be adult supervision.
“Don’t allow your kids to use the family computer in private,” she said.
“Be aware of their Facebook contacts and the content of that contact.”
