Fort Bend ISD police are investigating another stranger danger incident in the Sienna Plantation neighborhood.
The latest incident occurred around 3 p.m. Tuesday as a ninth grade student, who attends Clements High School, got off the bus at Sienna Springs and Sienna Ranch Road, according to a letter sent out by the school’s principal, David Yaffie.
Principal Yaffie said the student reported that a gray Nissan or Hyundai sedan approached him that was driven by a black woman in her late 40s or early 50s. The woman told the boy she worked for Fort Bend ISD and offered him study and testing materials to prepare for the SAT/ACT tests.
School officials said the woman also invited the student to sit in her vehicle, but the student declined.
The student told authorities that he kept walking, and the vehicle did not attempt to follow him.
Officials said the student walked directly home and reported the incident to his family.
This incident is being investigated by the Fort Bend ISD police and the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
According to school officials, a third grader was riding his bike home from school on Sienna Ranch Road when a black truck drove up alongside him. The boy reported that a female passenger inside of the vehicle called out for him to come over to the truck. The student quickly turned, and rode his bike home. He was not hurt in the incident, but parents are concerned.
Authorities have increased patrols near the areas of both schools.
Principal Yaffie asks parents to take time to talk about safety with students, especially for those who walk or ride bicycles to and from school.
“We ask that students stay with a group and avoid walking or biking alone,” Yaffie wrote in the letter to parents. “Students should pay attention to their surroundings and be on the lookout for suspicious people and vehicles.”
Anyone with information about this or any other stranger danger incident should call the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office at 281-341-4665.
Parents with questions are also encouraged to call Clemens High School at 281-634-2150.
