Man tries to pick up boy near Keller district school

A student at Hillwood Middle School said a stranger tried to lure him into a pickup truck Thursday morning while the student was walking to his bus stop in far north Fort Worth.

Jim Joros, principal of the Keller ISD school, sent a letter home to parents Thursday describing the incident.

The boy said a man in a pickup truck rolled down his window, pointed to the student and said, "Come here." The boy ran to a friend’s house and told him about the encounter. The boys decided to walk to the bus stop together, and they said they saw the pickup again.

They said the driver made a U-turn toward them, but they were able to safely board the bus.

The boys said the man had a mustache, grey hair and a "flat-top" haircut. He was driving an older, neon green and white truck with a silver tool box across the bed, they said.

Police have not found anyone matching the description.
