The Marion County Sheriff’s Office has issued a Community Alert after a juvenile was approached by a stranger in a pickup truck on September 22nd while walking home from school.

MCSO  reports that the young male was approached  while walking home from the bus stop in Lake Tropicana, when a man in a white 1990s model pickup truck pulled up next to him and ordered him to “Get in the truck.”  The driver was reported to be a white male approximately in his 40s with a brown jawline beard and medium length curly brown hair. The truck was reported to have camouflage seat covers and a sticker on the back driver’s side window depicting a deer.

The MCSO is asking citizens to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings, especially in Southwest Marion County, and to remind children what to do should they be approached by a stranger. MSCO recommends the method they call “No-Go-Yell-Tell”, meaning they should tell the  stranger “No” , run away, yell as loud as they can, and tell a trusted adult about the incident.
