SAN ANTONIO – Northeast ISD parents were sent a letter Tuesday warning them of a stranger danger incident reported at John H. Wood Jr. Middle School.

Two female students reported to administrators that a man called out to them from his car on Wenzel Road around 3:45 p.m.

The students ignored him, but the man got out of his car and began approaching them, according to the letter sent to parents by Wood Middle School Principal Marcus Alvarez.

The girls got to their ride safely, and the man returned to his car and drove off, according to the letter.
