strange male at school
Letters have been sent out with students at Pauline HAARER Elementary School warning parents after a suspicious male grabbed a 6 year old female student after lunch on Thursday afternoon.
The student had forgotten her sweater on the playing field and had returned with a friend to retrieve it before heading back to class. The student was startled when she was grabbed around the waist and lifted by an unknown male on the sports field.
Once she screamed, the male dropped the student who was able to run away. The student describes the male as Caucasian, 6' tall, skinny, approximately 30 years old, with short brown hair wearing sunglasses, a dark green t-shirt and black shorts.
The student was not harmed during the incident and acted appropriately when confronted by a stranger. Parents are reminded to talk with their children about stranger contact and formulate an action plan to follow.
