FORT BEND - Police and school administrators are warning of an older man who offered a middle school student a ride.

Fort Bend ISD administrators said a man between the ages of 50 or 60, tried to pick up a Lake Olympia Middle School student near Burton Elementary on Tuesday morning.

Lake Olympia administrators sent the following to parents:

"As part of our continuing effort to keep you informed, I want to make you aware of an incident that occurred yesterday before school, near a bus stop in the Teal Run Subdivision. At approximately 8:00 a.m. near the intersection of Hunter Green and Hardwood Glen, a black male between the ages of 50 and 60 years old approached one of our male students as the student was walking to his bus stop. The man asked the student several times if he was lost and needed a ride to school. The suspicious man was bald, had gray facial hair and a stocky build, and was wearing eye glasses with thin frames. He was reported to be driving a black Lexus or a black Mercedes vehicle."

A district spokesperson said the the student got away.
