Officials with the Fayette County Public School system say that a man tried to get a middle school student in the car with him Wednesday.
The Morton Middle School student said she was walking to the bus stop in the Lakeshore Drive and Altamont Court area, when a man driving a red car pulled over and asked her if she wanted $100.
When she refused the money, he asked her to come toward him.
The girl ran away and the incident has been reported to Lexington Police. They plan to increase patrols in the area.
Police are currently investigating the case.
In a letter sent home to parents, school officials remind them that this is an opportunity to talk to children about the importance of being aware of their surroundings and being cautious around strangers.
Students who walk to school or the bus stop are encouraged to stay in pairs or groups, avoid darkened areas and use main streets instead of shortcuts.
