This email sent today by the Mamaroneck School District parents, giving us all that jolt we sometimes need to remind kids how to stay safe:
The Larchmont Police Department is investigating a report of an attempted luring of a child. A ten-year-old male reported that on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at approximately 3:15 pm, while walking home from school, on Boston Post Road in the vicinity of Bonnet Ave, he was approached by an adult male suspect.
