Sierra Vista Junior High School parents were notified Monday about an incident of a male suspect attempting to lure a student.
Principal Carolyn Hoffman called parents to remind their students the importance of walking to and from school in groups and to be mindful of their surroundings. The following information is from Sierra Vista’s social media account:
We received information tonight (Monday) that after school a man in a black van with front and back windows and long windows on the sides attempted to lure a student. The van had red paint markings on the side. The van approached the student near the corner of Delight and Esterbrook in Canyon Country. The man driving the van was described as being dressed all in black with a black hoodie and a black hat turned backwards.
It was reported that he was wearing a black bandana over his mouth. He had dred-like hair and his skin tone was light to dark.
Local authorities have been notified and increased patrol units will be around school. If you have any further information, please call the SCV Sheriff’s Station at 255-1121. Also, our S V Text-A-Tip number is (661) 724-6478.
The safety of all students is our primary concern.
