EUCLID, Ohio — Euclid City Schools officials are warning parents to be watchful of their children after a possible abduction attempt Tuesday night.
Audrey Holtzman, district spokeswoman, said at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday two girls were walking near a drug store on East 200th Street when they were approached by a man who tried to lure them inside his white van.
He was described as being white and in his 50s.
This follows a similar incident on Sept. 4, where a girl was approached by a similar man driving a similar white van.
The white van is described as having white tinted windows.
The district sent parents an alert Wednesday night asking them to talk to their children about strangers and to keep an eye out for any suspicious vehicles.
The complete alert sent to all school district parents states the following:
“Euclid police have been investigating a white van seen in and around Euclid neighborhoods. A white man, who appears to be in his 50’s, has been attempting to lure children into his vehicle. We urge you to speak to your child about stranger safety. Please be aware of any suspicious vehicles in your neighborhood. If you see a suspicious vehicle please report the license plate number to the Euclid Police Department. Make sure your family has a safety plan in place.”
