Strangers approach Turner students
It is unclear if the incidents are related, District Administrator Dennis McCarthy said. No suspects have been reported, he said.
According to a letter district officials sent home Tuesday:
-- 9:15 a.m. Sunday at Park and Elmwood avenues. A bearded, white man with reddish-brown hair stopped and told three girls to get in the car because it was too cold to be walking. The man drove a dark-blue PT Cruiser with a brown stripe. The girls refused and reported the incident to a parent, who then reported the incident to the Town of Beloit Police Department.
-- 3:40 p.m. Monday 2400 block of East-West Hart Road. A middle-aged white male with brown hair followed two middle school girls when they got off the bus. The man drove an older red sedan with side-tinted windows. He followed the girls for a short distance before trying to drive in front of them and block their path. The students ran to a neighbor’s home and reported the incident to the Rock County Sheriff’s Department.
