MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio — Parents and community members are on alert after a possible child luring in a local school district earlier this week.
According to Big Creek Elementary School Principal John Brzozowski, it happened to fourth grader as he got off the bus Wednesday afternoon.
Middleburg Heights police say two men drove up in a car on Meadow Lane and asked the child if he wanted some candy.
The boy then turned around and ran home. His mom later called police to file a report.
In an email to a nearby school, Brzozowski warned community members to be aware of their surroundings.
“Please alert your staff regarding this incident. Our transportation department has been informed. Can you alert the bus driver (all drivers) to keep her eyes open and if anyone in your area sees this car, have them get a license plate number, and call the police.”
Police describe the suspect vehicle as a small, maroon, 4-door, older model car. The driver was said to have facial hair.
Anyone with information should call the Middleburg Heights Police Department.
