The last such incident, where two men tried to lure a boy into his car in Kópavogur with the promise of candy, was reported on Monday, Fréttabladid reports.

The board of the National Parents’ Association of Iceland (Heimili og skóli) issued a statement yesterday, iterating that parents should talk candidly with their children about such risks but without instilling fear.
