A student from Island Trees Memorial Middle School who was walking home from school was approached by a stranger in a dark SUV last Thursday, Nassau County Police said. 

Police said that the boy was walking home at 2:50 p.m. on Cotton Lane and Hawk Lane, just a few blocks from the school, when he approached by a white male, 20-30 years of age, driving a dark SUV. The man then asked the child if they needed a ride home and the boy they ran off in the opposite direction while the man drove away, police said. 

Island Trees School District Superintendent Charles Murphy said he has alerted all parents and asked them to review their “stranger danger” procedures with their children.

Last Wednesday, a Calhoun HS student was followed home by a black man in a white mini-van, and on Tuesday a student at Camp Avenue School was approached by an older man asking the child if they could help him locate a lost dog. Police are not sure if the incidents in Merrick are related to the Levittown incident. 

Patch will provide more details as they become available.
