Luckily, she recognized a school employee behind the car so she pointed and pretended that person was her mom. The man then drove off.

“This world is safe, but also not safe. You need to have codes like a safe code for like when someone’s picking a child up and the parent has a safe code between the child and them and that they only know,” Santiago said.

Santiago also recommends never walking alone. The man is described as tall and skinny with short brown hair. If you recognize the sedan, call Swatara Township Police.
