PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Public Schools administrators notified parents about two "stranger danger" incidents in northeast Portland.

The first incident occurred at around 5 p.m. Monday near Beverly Cleary School on the 1900 block of Northeast 33rd Avenue.

Several students were walking home when they said a silver four-door car pulled up and the driver offered the children money to get into the car.

The students continued walking and said the driver followed them until they arrived at one of their homes. The driver then left the area.

The students told their parents and police were notified.

The second incident occurred Tuesday near Northeast 60th and Prescott Street. A girl said she was walking home when a man drove up next to her with five dollars in his hand and asked her how old she was.

Parents were advised to watch out for a silver vehicle, described as having dents on the front of the car, or any other vehicle with someone displaying similar behavior. Any such sightings should be reported to police immediately.

Noting the license plate would also be helpful in identifying a potential suspect.

"If your child or their friends have a cell phone, you can instruct them to take a photo of vehicle, license plate or perpetrator for sharing with the police," a letter from administrators states.
