Norwalk parents on alert after reports of suspicious behavior near school
Many parents in Norwalk are on alert following reports of suspicious behavior near the Ponus Ridge Middle School. School Superintendent Doctor Sal Corda sent letters out on October 10, alerting parents to listen to their kids for any stories of suspicious adults hanging around school grounds. This warning was sent after an 11-year-old says a man approached her at the bus stop, and another claims she saw an adult making inappropriate gestures in the woods near the middle school. Police and school officials are looking into these allegations. Meanwhile, police say this is the perfect time for parent to review safe behavior for their kids. Lt. Peter Randall of the Norwalk Police Department says it's important for kids to stay with their friends, and walk in groups to and from the bus stop if possible.
