MANDURAH Catholic College has issued a safety warning to parents after a man allegedly tried to lure a student into his car.

In an email to parents, principal Chris Wallace said a Year Eight male student exited a bus between Dorothy Avenue and Merlin Street in Falcon and a car approached him.

It is alleged a silver car pulled over and a man told the student to get in.

Mr Wallace said the student refused and the man told the student to close the door and he drove off.

Mr Wallace said police had been notified about the incident.

“In light of this incident, I urge all students to take care when going to and from school, and to report anything suspicious to parents, school and the police,” he said.

It is the second reported stranger danger incident in the same day, with a Spearwood school reporting a man who appeared to be taking photographs of kids on the school oval.

To keep safe while in public students were urged to travel in company, walk on the right hand side of the road to face oncoming traffic, stay in well-lit areas and to be alert.

Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online if you have information about the incident.
