SPENCER - A new report of a suspicious man in a white van approaching children was reported in Spencer on Tuesday at Lincoln Elementary School.
Spencer police say they were notified around 12:43 p.m. of an older white van with a white male in his 60s or early 70s that had stopped and attempted to make contact with two young students on the playground. Police say two teachers aides were also on the playground at the time and that the man then left. Efforts to locate the vehicle have been unsuccessful.
Spencer police and law enforcement agencies throughout the region remind parents to educate their children not to talk to strangers nor get into a stranger's vehicle.
Law enforcement authorities in several northwest Iowa entities have had several similar incidents in the last two weeks.
