The man used reddit to explain the situation that took place in a tram in Melbourne on Thursday morning and to ask if he could do something to ensure the safety of the child.

He said that the stranger, presumably in his early years & # 39; 30, sat down next to the boy and started many & # 39; suspicious & # 39; to ask questions.

& # 39; I acknowledge that no crime has been committed & # 39 ;, he wrote.

& # 39; But this morning in my tram a man (30 years old?) Sat down next to a primary school child and asked many suspicious questions. & # 39;

He said the questions were: & # 39; Which school do you go to? On which days do you have PE? Where do you live? Do you always take a tram to school? And do you have swimming lessons? & # 39;

But the nature of the questions changed as the strange man tried to delve deeper into specific details of the boy's life and asked: & Where are your swimming lessons? Does your teacher come with you? Is your teacher there all the time? & # 39;

The Good Samaritan said he found the situation & # 39; alarming & # 39; found and noticed that the stranger touched the child by tapping him on the back when he got up to leave the tram.

& # 39; I took a quick photo of the man because I thought it was a little alarming, & # 39; he wrote.

& # 39; The boy got out at my stop and the man patted him on the back when he got up.

& # 39; After we got out of the tram, I asked the boy if he knew the man and he said no.

& # 39; I told the child it was pretty scary that someone asked so many questions and was careful.

The Reddit user said he & # 39; a little weird & # 39; was upset and asked Reddit users where to report the incident.

Users agreed that the stranger had acted improperly, with many giving advice.

& # 39; Oh, that's damn rude, good for you to get in, & # 39; said a person.

& # 39; At first I thought: "Oh relax, not everyone who talks to children is a pedo" … Then the questions became clearer, "shared another.

& # 39; What time would you say you are the most vulnerable to abduction? Hypothetically of course, & # 39; another sarcastic asked.

Another user commented and said the questions were particularly frightening because they indicate a desire for a physical approach where the student is vulnerable. (The user) is absolutely right to notify the police and school as soon as they did & # 39 ;.

The man later edited the post to confirm that he had reported the incident to CrimeStoppers and sent a copy of the report to the boy's school.
