HOUSTON – The Katy Independent School District sent out a stranger-danger alert Monday after students at Bear Creek Elementary said an unknown woman attempted to motion one of them into a vehicle.
It happened at about 7:50 a.m. in the 4800 block of Hickory Downs Drive.
A few elementary students walking to school said a woman driving a dark blue Ford van stopped to motion one of the students to come to the vehicle. When the student refused the woman drove away.
Last week, two different elementary schools reported that a driver tried to lure them into a white van on Sept. 25.
Three students at Rylander Elementary on Westheimer Pkwy at Falcon Landing say a white van pulled up alongside them when they were walking home from school. The driver told them he was a friend of their parents and had been sent to pick them up. One of the students screamed and the kids ran away.
The students said the white van had the word “mowing” on the side and was driven by a black male who was balding with short hair and had a “verbal accent.”
Then 33 minutes later, students walking home from McRoberts Elementary on N. Fry Road, 10 miles away from the first school, also reported that a suspicious man in a white van tried to lure them. But this time the driver was white and the students said the van had multi-color “daycare” markings. The students ran away and never saw the van again.
Katy ISD says it sent out a district-wide alert to everyone who had an email on file with the school district.
Katy ISD asks if anyone sees anything suspicious to report it to Katy ISD Police.
