City police have received two reports of attempted lurings, one from this afternoon and one from Friday afternoon.
1. A 5th grade student at Riverside Elementary was walking on Centre Avenue near the Children's Home of Reading with her sibling after early dismissal today (Monday, March 2). A man in a green Durango pulled up, rolled down his window and asked her to get in his car. She and her sibling began to run home. The man then ran the red light at Centre Avenue and Spring Street as he fled. Both students are safe.  

2. A student at 13th and Green reported walking home on Friday afternoon (Friday, Feb. 27) in the 600 block of N. 12th Street, between Greenwich and Oley streets. A Hispanic man, age 50-60, asked him to get in his car. The car was a dark-colored van. The man was wearing a black hat and black jacket with a white shirt underneath.The boy ran home and told his mother, who filed a report with the police. She reported the incident to the school today. This is a separate incident from the one reported to the school on Friday.
