Ken-Ton parents warned of ‘suspicious incidents’ involving students

Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School officials are warning parents of two “suspicious incidents” reported to police this week involving a man in a vehicle making comments to students.

The first happened Monday in the area of Starin and Englewood avenues. Town of Tonawanda police were told the man was driving by bus stops in a blue vehicle making comments.

The man was described as white and balding with blonde hair.

On Tuesday, a 14-year-old was approached in the area of Sheridan drive and Parkedge Avenue by a white male in a blue vehicle who made “a threatening remark,” school officials said in a warning posted to the district’s website. The man was described as being 35 to 40 years old and having a scruffy appearance.

In both cases, the vehicle was blue in color and it may have been a minivan or a Chevrolet Trailblazer, according to school officials.

School officials asked parents to remind their children to never accept a ride or any other offer from a stranger. Such activity should be reported to Town of Tonawanda police’s confidential tip line at (716) 879-6606.
