Elizabethtown boy reports suspicious man offered candy

The Elizabethtown Area School District is alerting parents to a report that a suspicious man twice approached a middle school student Wednesday morning.

According to the district's website, the boy's parents told police he was walking to school on East Willow Street toward Mount Joy Street when a man in a red Dodge Ram van offered him candy.

The boy refused the offer and continued on his way, but returned to his home when the van continued to follow him. He then attempted to get to school using a different route, but the van reappeared and he returned to his home, according to the school district.

The man was described as white and between the ages of 30 and 40.

Anyone with information concerning the incident is asked to call Elizabethtown Borough Police through the dispatch center at 717-367-1835.
