Parents of children in Perrysburg Schools received a letter today warning of ”suspicious incidents.”
The Perrysburg Police today informed the schools they have received complaints of three incidences of suspicious activity near Toth Elementary School this week.
It has been reported that a white male in his early twenties with dark curly hair stopped in a vehicle and offered candy to young boys and girls walking home. Two different vehicles may have been used: a white cargo van in one case and a vehicle described as a dark, possibly blue, pick-up truck. It was also reported that another male with facial hair was in the vehicle. None of the children approached the vehicles and all ran to safety.
These incidences occurred on streets surrounding Toth School and took place at approximately 3:45 p.m.
The police have been authorized to work overtime, including plain clothes officers, to apprehend these individuals. The suspects do not match the descriptions of recent abduction attempts in Toledo.
The schools have notified teachers and staff about these incidences and have talked to their students about Stranger Danger and what to do if approached by a stranger. the school asks parents to reinforce these lessons at home.
The Perrysburg Police are asking anyone with information to contact the police department at (419) 872-8001.
