Police are warning League City residents about a suspicious person who approached a child as he was walking home from school.
The child was walking home from school on Monday when the stranger approached him and asked the boy if he was locked out of his home and tried to convince him to get into his car.
The boy was able to run to a neighbor's home to report the encounter.
Police describe the stranger as a man in his 60s with white hair who drove a four-door vehicle with faded red paint.
Police have increased patrols in the vicinity of all League City schools, though the incident was reported near Hall Elementary School.
League City police notified Clear Creek Independent School District officials and have encouraged parents to teach their children how to respond to this type of situation.
Citizens are encouraged to report any suspicious behavior directly to the League City Police Department at 281-332-2566 or 911. Look for license plate numbers, make and model of the vehicle, direction of travel, and any stickers or defects on the vehicle.
