Report of attempted child luring in Arnold under investigation
New Kensington and Arnold police are investigating a report of a child-luring attempt.
Authorities said they are looking for an older, white man with a gray beard and a tan car.
He is suspected to have attempted to lure children into his vehicle in Arnold on Wednesday.
New Kensington police said no arrests have been made. Arnold police declined comment late Wednesday evening.
The New Kensington-Arnold School District alerted parents about the incident through calls and a post on the district’s Facebook page.
Superintendent John Pallone said the attempt did not take place on district property, and noted the district has security and cameras in all its schools.
“We have a good relationship with our police departments,” he said. “It’s prudent to make our children aware of potential dangers in our communities.”
