The incident reported yesterday that a subject had attempted to grab a 12 yr old child while walking to school has been discovered to be false. Concerned parents and school staff are being made aware that there is no danger at this time regarding this incident.
Today a School Resource Officer (SRO) began conducting a follow-up in the area where the incident was reported.
Through interviews with residents in the area, the SRO discovered information that was not consistent with the child’s report. Video surveillance in the area also revealed inconsistencies.
The SRO re-interviewed the child who then disclosed that the incident did not happen. It is unknown why the child reported the incident.
Any action taken against the child for the false report will be handled by the child’s parents and the school.
