Rock Creek USD 323 Superintendent Darrell Stufflebeam sent a message to parents Tuesday afternoon regarding an incident that took place at the end of the school day.
In the message sent to the parents, two 6th grade boys were putting materials in the recycling trailer at the end of the day and they encountered an older man (60-70 years old) who was acting strangely and may have grabbed or tried to grab one of them. The man left in a newer, small, red Chevrolet vehicle (probably with four doors). The man had gray hair with a bald spot, a beard, and no glasses. The police are investigating.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s office at 785-457-3353.
