Police say man tried to lure siblings into car in southwest Austin

School officials sent out an alert to students and parents of Anderson Mill Elementary and Grisham Middle School after two students were approached by a stranger Monday morning. 

According to the letter siblings were walking to school when a man approached them in a white sedan and asked them to get in his car. 

The children “safely avoided the situation” and reported it to an adult who then called police. 

The Round Round Independent School District is asking parents to remind their children to take precautions to stay safe.

The Austin Police Department are working to find the suspect. APD said they will also be monitoring the area before, during and after school.

Police have not released a suspect description at this point in the investigation.
