Juneau Police are looking for a white man they say may have tried to pick up two Gastineau School students Thursday morning at their bus stop.
Police say the man apparently tried to convince the children that their parents had sent him to pick them up. The incident happened about 9 a.m. by David Street on Douglas Highway.
Police don’t have an approximate age for the man, but describe him as between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall, medium build, with long black hair pulled back into a ponytail. He apparently was wearing a top hat and sun glasses, and has a star tattoo on his neck.
He reportedly was driving a white van with front windows and no other visible windows.
Police are reminding parents to talk with their children about the danger of speaking to strangers, and not to get into vehicles with someone they don’t know.
