Police Clarify Inaccurate Report of Child Luring

The North Brunswick School District sent out an email to parents about incidents of luring in South Brunswick, which township police said was incorrect.

An email sent earlier this month by the North Brunswick School District alerting parents to incidents of attempted child luring in South Brunswick was incorrect, township police said on Tuesday.

Earlier in November, there were two suspicious incidents reported of possible child luring in South Brunswick. Police followed up on both incidents and were able to identify the vehicles and persons involved. In one case, a miscommunication occurred where a neighbor offered a child who lives a few doors down a ride to her bus stop on a cold day, police said. 

"Back on Nov. 11, North Brunswick sent out something that said the South Brunswick Police Department reported incidents of luring, but the details aren't true," said South Brunswick Police spokesman Sgt. Jim Ryan. "We were able to quickly resolve both cases, which were just miscommunicatons."

Sgt. Ryan emphasized that in each case involving juveniles and suspicious activity, officers attempt to confirm as many details as possible. If a luring incident is confirmed, police quickly share it with the South Brunswick School District and get the information out to the public.

Any questions should be directed to the South Brunswick Police Detective Bureau at 732-329-4000 ext. 7496.
