The incident was then reported as a possible child luring to Lower Paxton Police. The School District quickly reported the incident to District parents and, as a result, police were contacted by the van driver who is a neighbor of the student. The driver said he stopped because the child was standing in the rain and he wanted to help.
Police, the child’s father and other neighbors are satisfied that this was a misunderstanding and the investigation has ended.
