SCHENECTADY, NY (WRGB) — — The Schenectady School District is asking parents to be on alert while police investigate reports of a man approaching a student.
According to the district, on February 10th, at around 8:45, a student was approached twice by a man driving a grey FJ Cruiser.
The district says that man approached the student twice near the corner of Bradt St. and Broadway. On the second attempt, that man offered the student a ride.
According to a post on Facebook, the incident was reported to police immediately, and a license plate was confirmed on video surveillance. Police are looking for that person.
Some parents commented on the school district’s post with disappointment that district officials did not notify them about the incident until a day later.
One parent commented that there are children who walked home on Friday and if parents had known, they would have picked their children up or warned them to be aware of their surroundings.
CBS6 reached out to the school district to get their response to parents’ concerns but have not heard back.
On Monday, Police say they have located the vehicle, but not the driver.
The man is described as a mid 40’s male, large build, bald, with a medium complexion.
Police say no crime has been committed.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Schenectady Police Youth Aid Bureau at (518) 382-5256.
