Man Attempts To Lure Students Into Car

Man Attempts To Lure Students Into Car
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Sioux Falls parents are on alert following two reports of a suspicious man trying to lure students into his car.

Police say a 50-year-old white man with a white beard and hair approached a child who was walking to Lowell Elementary Friday morning. The man invited the child into his black car, according to police. 

Thursday morning, a man with a similar description tried the same thing at Discovery Elementary, only in a white car.

Within minutes of hearing about the reports, Amanda Golden ran three blocks to make sure she was at Lowell Elementary when school let out.

"I have three kids here and this is kind of freaky that there is a man trying to get kids. It's the worst fear in a parent's mind," Golden said.

"I was startled because you just can't let them walk anywhere anymore. We only live four blocks.  He could really walk home, but we don't let him with stuff like that going on," Louella Lueth said.

Both reports came in Friday, prompting the police to take action. The Sioux Falls School District sent out an email and phone alert to parents Friday afternoon.

"I couldn't even imagine what would happen if the kid actually got in the vehicle. Oh my goodness, my fears, my heart is still beating right now," Golden said.

If you see a man matching the description near a school, please contact 911.
