Dear School Community,

I wanted to inform you of a disturbing situation that occurred yesterday afternoon. There was an attempted child luring/corruption of a minor incident on Rebeccas Lane near Thornton Road in Concord Township. A male, driving a cream-colored sedan, described as Hispanic or Asian in his mid to late 40’s with short black hair, a baseball cap, and a beard, pulled his vehicle near the victim after she exited the school bus and proceeded to show her sexually explicit video on his phone. He then asked the victim if she would engage in sexual acts with him. Fortunately, this resourceful and courageous student did all of the right things and got home safely.

We are working in conjunction with the state police and are fully investigating the issue. All of our drivers are on heightened alert, and we ask that families reinforce their safety rules and expected behaviors with children this evening.

If anyone has information regarding this incident, please contact the Pennsylvania State Police, Media Barracks at 484-840-1000 or 911 for an immediate issue.

Sincerely,

Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent

Garnet Valley School District
