NOVATO (BCN) — Novato police today disclosed what it called a “suspicious incident” involving two 11-year-old female students in December.
Police said the Sinaloa Middle School girls were approached by two men between 20 and 30 years old on Center Road while they were walking to school.
The girls ignored the men’s attempt to interact with them and continued walking without further incident, Lt. Oliver Collins said.
The men, one of whom appeared intoxicated, did not make any attempt to make physical contact with the students or talk to them further after the girls walked away, Collins said.
“While this interaction may not be criminal in nature, it is out of the ordinary,” Collins said.
Collins said police are releasing information about the incident to inform the public about it. Police remind parents and guardians to advise their children not to interact with strangers and be aware of their surroundings.
Police encourage students and parents to report suspicious persons to them and the Novato Unified School District, Oliver said.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Novato police.
