Police received a report that on Thursday, April 12, 2018, at approximately 9:10 AM an 11 year-old student was walking in the 1100 block of Boxwood Drive when a gray colored four-door sedan pulled alongside the juvenile. The driver of the sedan asked if the juvenile wanted to get into the car for a ride to school. The juvenile told the driver no and began running toward school.
The juvenile immediately notified a faculty member upon reaching school. The school called 9-1-1 and officers searched the area for the gray colored four-door sedan, but were unable to locate it.
