Police warn of stranger following children walking home from school
One incident occurred in east Round Rock prior to spring break; similar incident happened in Austin days later

Round Rock Police are reminding parents to talk to their children about accepting rides from strangers, following an incident that occurred before spring break

A 13-year-old student reported being followed by a male who was driving a dirty, two-door black pickup truck. The pickup was probably two to three years old, similar to a Ford F-150 or Chevrolet Silverado.

The driver was described as a chunky white male with short hair, a grey beard and bad teeth. This incident happened on Redbud Lane approaching Forest Creek Drive in east Round Rock. The student got into the truck and was given a ride to the street of her residence. No crime was committed.

A few days later, the Austin Police Department dealt with a similar incident where a white male driving a newer model, single-cab, black pickup stopped and asked a 15-year-old female walking home from school, if she wanted a ride. This driver was described as being in his late 30s to 40s, gray hair and a gray goatee.

The Round Rock Police encourages parents and guardians to talk to their children and inform them to never talk to or accept rides from strangers.
