From the principal at Doss Elementary:
May 9, 2012
On the way to school this morning, a Doss 4th grader was approached by a stranger. The stranger asked the student questions like “where do you live” and “what is your name”?
The child is safe. She did not respond, walked around the stranger, and continued on to school. This incident was immediately reported to Austin ISD police and APD. The police reported that a man with a similar description also approached a middle school student recently.
The description is as follows: 50ish, African American male, wearing athletic shorts. He is bald and does not currently have facial hair.
Please be on alert! Make sure that your kids walk or ride to school with a buddy. Report any suspicious behavior immediately to the Austin Police Department by calling 311.
