Suspicious man approaches elementary school student
April 2, 2013
A police report was filed March 26 after a stranger approached a Clark Elementary School student as the boy walked home from school.
An email sent by Principal Tod Wood described the stranger as a middle-aged man in a black/dark-gray Ford Bronco-like vehicle. He reportedly stopped and began questioning the student about what he was doing and what he had done during the day. The child ran away and notified adults; his parents later made a police report.
In his email to the Clark community, Wood urged parents to discuss “stranger danger” with their children. He also provided several safety tips for students, including never talk to strangers or give them any personal information, like your name or address, and if a stranger does grab you, yell as loudly as you can and run away.
Anyone with information about the incident can call the Issaquah Police Department at 837-3200.
