Police look for man who tried to summon 2 boys
The Hays Police Department wants to remind residents of some safety tips, following a report of suspicious activity Friday morning.
According to a release from the HPD, two boys, ages 10 and 13, waiting for a school bus at the corner of 24th and Allen, were summoned to a dark green pickup by the truck's driver. The boys' mother saw the pickup as she was driving away and began approaching the area. The driver, described as a white male, possibly in his 40s with long brown hair and wearing a hat, saw the woman and quickly left the area, running a stop sign in the process.
Police are trying to identify the man and are asking anyone with information about the incident or any related ones to contact HPD at (785) 625-1011.
They also encourage people to remember a few things, such as traveling in pairs or groups; remaining alert to surroundings, including locations, vehicles and people; never get into a stranger's vehicle; don't give personal information to strangers; get away and get help if you don't feel comfortable with a person or situation; and call 911 if you think something is dangerous.
