LAKEVIEW, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Parents in Nassau County recently received a letter from police, warning them about a man trying to lure young children with candy.
As CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan reported, police said it has happened several times.
On Friday afternoon, students from Lynbrook walked home from school in groups close to the curb. Teachers advised them to stay away from shrubbery and doorways, and to avoid shortcuts through parks, vacant lots or alleys.
The students said a letter was sent out about the reported child luring, and parents were horrified.
“It’s upsetting,” one woman said. “I have a little one who’s seven.”
