PSD warns parents of suspicious strangers

Schools: Districts has reports of strangers offering rides to students near bus stops

of the GatewayDecember 4, 2013 

The Peninsula School District sent out a message via Facebook on Wednesday notifying parents of suspicious strangers near bus stops. 

There have been two reports from students in the afternoon of Dec. 3.

On Fox Island, near Island Boulevard and Kamus Drive, a Caucasian male in his 60s driving a gray Toyota Prius offered a ride to a student. In a second incident in the Goodman area and Chelsea Park, two Caucasians, a female and male passenger both appearing to be in their 50s, offered a ride to a student. In that incident the vehicle was a navy blue in bad condition with one headlight out.

The incidents have been reported to law enforcement. The students said they were concerned because the drivers offered them rides more than once.

The district, in the post, asked parents to remind their children that they should not engage with suspicious people and should report these incidents to an adult or law enforcement immediately.
