Yesterday at 2:23 p.m. a Sherbrooke Academy Senior Elementary School student was approached by an older man with a short white beard driving a dark blue four-door sedan.
According to the student’s mother, who wished to remain anonymous, her daughter crossed the street in front of him onto Arlington. Sherbrooke Academy is located on Windermere Drive.
“He slowly drove close to her,” the mother said. “He made a “pst” sound three times, and she ignored him. To get her attention, he called out the car window and said ‘hey kid’.”
The child saw her mother’s car parked on the street and ran toward her vehicle and jumped in.
“My daughter does not want me to post anything myself as she feels embarrassed and guilty and does not want people talking about it to her or about her.”
The school and the police have been notified.
“I felt the community should be aware of this incident,” she reported.
