The Park Hill School District has issued a safety alert Monday after a 10-year-old elementary student reported a stranger approached him on Saturday and told him to get in the car.
The incident happened about 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the Thousand Oaks Subdivision near the 6600 block of North Nevada Avenue in rural Platte County, according to the Platte County Sheriff’s Department.
A resident of the subdivision told deputies that her son was approached by a man driving a red, midsize sedan. The stranger drove the car up to the child, rolled down a window and told the boy to “jump in.”
The boy ran home and told his parents. A complete description of the man, who was thought to have been in his 40s, was not available.
