Menlo Park police investigate 'stranger danger' incident

 

Police in Menlo Park are investigating a report that two men may have tried to lure a child into a vehicle on Friday (March 25).

Officers responded to a call at 3:27 p.m. from residents who said their 12-year-old son was approached by two men in a vehicle as he was walking home in the area of Sharon Road and Alameda de las Pulgas.

The boy said the men asked him if he was running late and then told him to get in the car, police said. The boy said "No" and then quickly walked away.

Police described the men as possibly being Hispanic men in their 20s. The vehicle was described as an older silver four-door sedan.

Police said it is not known if the men were trying to lure the boy into the vehicle or just trying to scare him.
