John Forrest Secondary College students urged to ‘take care’ after men tried to lure female student into ute

A MORLEY school has urged its students to “take care” after a group of men tried to lure a female student into a ute last Friday.

Last Friday morning, a female student was walking to John Forrest Secondary College on Russell Road.

Four to five adult men allegedly requested several times she get into the white ute they were driving.

She refused and ran off.

Morley officer-in-charge Tony Vuleta said police attended and spoke to the girl and her family.

He said investigations were continuing and they were trying to identify witnesses.

John Forrest principal Melissa Gillett informed parents, students and carers about the “stranger danger incident” yesterday.

“I urge all students to take care when going to and from school, and to report anything suspicious to their parents, the college and police,” she wrote in an email.

She sent a list of safety suggestions to parents and carers that included for students to travel in a group, stay in well-lit areas and run from a situation if you feel at risk.

If you know anything about the incident call WA Police 13 14 44 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
