Parents are on alert after a suspicious man tried to lure a teenager into his van. District 12 sent out an e-mail warning to parents Wednesday morning.
Colorado Springs police say a 16-year-old boy was walking home from school when a man in a white van approached him and offered a ride home. The teen refused, and the stranger took off.
The man inside the van was described as being college-aged. The vehicle is a white, delivery-style van with tinted windows.
The incident happened last month, but wasn’t reported until recently, which is why the district’s e-mail was delayed until now.
11 News asked for reaction from the district superintendent, but we were told he is out of town.
If you have any information that could help police in this case, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
