Student approached on way to school by a stranger
An 8th grade student was dropped off this AM around 8:15 AM at the corner of 16th and Valley. The female student walked down the "alley" between Vons and Aaron Bros. on her way to Starbucks. As she neared the corner of Vons and the large parking lot she became aware of a slow moving vehicle near her. She picked up the pace of walking and as she neared the corner of Vons the driver of the vehicle said to her, "Psst, come here." The student immediately ran into Vons and waited until she felt safe. The student exited the parking lot down the stairs to the green belt where she joined a friend and other adults.
