Here is a Stranger Danger notice sent out from Humble ISD about an incident that occurred near Timberwood Middle School earlier this week.
"March 7, 2019
Dear Timberwood Middle School Parents,
I wanted to make you aware of an incident that was reported to us today.
At approximately 9:15 a.m., a student was walking to school on Flax Bourton Street near the park. A red four-door car pulled up next to the student and the driver offered her a ride to school. She declined, and the man said "Don't run or I'll follow you." The girl immediately ran away. She noticed that when she ran left on Timber Forest toward TMS, the man turned right toward 1960.
The man is described as a black male, older aged, with a white beard and scar marks on his face. The car is a red four-door sedan.
Humble ISD Police have been notified and are investigating. Police will increase their patrol near our campus at dismissal time.
This is a good opportunity to emphasize the following safety tips with your family members:
- Walk to and from school in groups. - If anything unusual occurs, tell an adult immediately. Time can be critical. - Never talk to strangers or accept rides from them, even if you are stranded. Call a trusted adult for transportation. - Be proactive: tour the neighborhood to identify safe and dangerous circumstances and places. Arrange for immediate access to neighbors or other trusted adults who could be contacted in an emergency. - Don't panic. If you are afraid or have a problem, call a parent or a trusted adult. - Never tell people at your door, phone callers, or online that you are home alone. - Keep your house key hidden. Don't give it to anyone and don't keep it in a visible place that would tell people you are going home to an empty house. - Never get into a car, enter a home, look for a lost pet or person, or accept food or items from an adult, unless your parents know what you are doing or have identified that person as a trusted emergency contact. - Tell a trusted adult - parent, teacher or counselor - if anyone ever makes you feel uncomfortable. Thank you for discussing these important points with your child.
