Police Alert: Middle school student approached by man in gray SUV Monday morning

Intersection of Crocker and La Salle where student was approached.

The Piedmont Police Department posted the following information on their Facebook page on Monday afternoon, April 8:

“An incident involving a young student this morning serves as a reminder that parents should be vigilant when it comes to teaching kids about stranger danger.

Around 7:40, in the area of Crocker and LaSalle Avenues, a middle school student was approached by a man in what we believe was a gray SUV. The stranger asked the student if he needed a ride to school. The student was alert enough to quickly call his mother who then called our department.

Officers immediately went to the area, but the suspected man and his vehicle had already left the area. We are currently following possible leads that may lead us to the man in question. Thankfully, the student is ok and we have not heard of any other incidents. We will of course, keep you updated.”
