Humble ISD Police have received a report of a stranger danger concern from two of our students. The siblings were walking along Echo Pines Drive near the Timbers Elementary campus at approximately 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3, when a woman approached them asking about the location of their parents. The siblings kept walking and met up with their mother who was parked in a car nearby. The mother said the individual was a white female with green hair and tattoos. The students were never harmed. Humble ISD Police are aware and have increased patrols in the area.
This is a good opportunity to emphasize the following safety tips with your children:
If anything unusual occurs, tell an adult immediately. Parents and teachers need to know what happened right away.
Walk or bike to and from school in groups.
Never talk to strangers or accept rides from them.
Arrange for immediate access to neighbors and other trusted adults who could answer questions or be contacted in an emergency.
Tour the neighborhood with your child to identify safe and dangerous circumstances.
Never get into a car, enter a home, look for a lost pet, or accept candy or toys from an adult, unless your parents know what you are doing and have given you their permission first.
Please report any concerns to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-221-6000 or Humble ISD Police at 281-641-7900.
