Suspicious Men Approach Elementary School Girls, Prompts District Letter

Two separate incidents, one at Bollinger Canyon Elementary School and the other near Hidden Hills Elementary School, prompt warning.

The district has become aware of two incidents in the last few days involving suspicious men talking to young girls.

It prompted a letter of warning from the district and the principals of local elementary schools sent it out.

The letter stated:

The district has received information about two separate and seemingly unrelated incidents within the past few days, and I wanted to pass this information on to you... Both incidents were reported by parents to local school principals. One occurred near Bollinger Canyon Elementary School, the other near Hidden Hills Elementary School.  Both were similar situations -  a man in a parked car who rolled his window down and began talking to a young girl. One of the parents reported that the man asked the girl to get into the car.  Both incidents were reported to local police.
We bring this to your attention as another reminder to please talk to your children about being aware of their surroundings and to talk to an adult if they see any suspicious behavior in the community.
Thank you!

For this to be of any help to others in Danville with school aged children (and I sincerely hope that's why it's being published) we need as much information as the police have. For instance, did these children give any descriptions of the men? How about the car? If the police don't have any information, fine, but if they have it and they're either not passing it on to Danville Patch or the Patch has it and they're not passing it on to readers, what's been done is a tremendous harm to your readership.

We've posted as much information as we have at this point.

Dianne: WC released a sketch of the suspect: http://walnutcreek.patch.com/articles/police-release-sketch-of-suspected-stalker I'm not sure where the Livermore case is, I'll see what I can find out. But you can keep an eye on Livermore Patch for updates.
