A man in  a black cargo van attempted to lure a North Park Junior High School student into that van, according to an email sent from Lockport City School District Superintendent Michelle Bradley to district administrators.

The email, forwarded to East Niagara Post, described the man as "a white male in his early 50s," with "gray and black hair along with a beard." It said the he was driving an "older model black cargo van (unknown make and model)" when he "attempted to lure the student into the vehicle." It said the man "held up a clear plastic bag."

LPD took a report on the matter and will be patrolling the area around North Park and Anna Merritt throughout the day. Anyone with any information on the van or driver is asked to call LPD at 433-7700.

Bradley's email praised the student's handing of the incident. "The student handled the situation very well and provided very good details.  He has been told to take pictures and/or call 911 if this happens again."

She also suggested that those receiving the email "review with students what to do if approached by a stranger without causing panic."

A call to Bradley was not immediately returned.
