Par­ents warned about man who fol­lowed stu­dent

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS -

Fair­field School in Levin has warned the com­mu­nity af­ter a fe­male stu­dent was fol­lowed by a man as she walked home last week.

The school said it had been ad­vised by po­lice to re­mind stu­dents about safe prac­tices for com­ing to school and re­turn­ing home.

The in­ci­dent in­volved a se­nior stu­dent who felt un­com­fort­able about a man who ap­peared to be fol­low­ing her and was try­ing to talk to her on Oc­to­ber 25.

Other schools in the area have been ad­vised.

Par­ents and care­givers are asked to take the time to dis­cuss stu­dent safety, espe­cially if stu­dents are walk­ing to and from school on their own.
