Conway police are urging residents to educate their children on the danger of predators after a man was seen attempting to lure children near Simon Intermediate School.

According to Lt. Susan Wilson with the Conway Police Department, a white or light-skinned black male attempted to lure children into his vehicle on three separate occasions at the school Thursday morning.

The suspect allegedly told the children that their mother wanted them to ride with him. The children refused and ran from the man. The suspect then left the scene.

The suspect was seen driving a red or maroon compact car with dark tinted windows.

Wilson said parents should caution children about riding with strangers and should encourage them to report any suspicious vehicles or persons.

Anyone with information on a possible suspect or those whose children may have had a similar experience are urged to contact the Conway Police Department at 450-6120 or their School Resource Officer.
