SAGINAW (WJRT) - (01/15/19) - A third stranger danger incident reported to Saginaw Public Schools has the district sending out an urgent note to parents.

The latest incident happened Tuesday morning, after a student alerted authorities after feeling threatened in the area of Elm and Division Streets.

In all three incidents, the district says students report being approached by an unknown black man. In two of those cases, he was wearing a black hoodie.

The first incident happened Friday near Bond and Madison.

Police say a man wearing all black grabbed an Arthur Hill student by the arm while she was walking to her bus stop.

She screamed for help and was able to run away.

The second incident was reported Monday morning near Wadsworth and Veterans Memorial Parkway. Two students reported a man wearing all black clothing approaching them at the bus stop.

He was seen getting out of a white SUV with tinted windows.

The students told school security they ran in the opposite direction.

The school says they're working with Saginaw police to get to the bottom of it.

The district is encouraging parents to talk to their children about staying vigilant and aware of their surroundings. Walk with a buddy if possible or have parents stay present until the bus arrives.

Anyone who feels uncomfortable or threatened should not hesitate to call 911.
