Dublin police and school officials warned parents about a man who allegedly approached two children on Saturday and tried to get them into a car.
The children said the man tried to lure them into his vehicle at Post Preserve Boulevard and Stillhouse Lane by asking if they wanted a ride.
A safety alert was sent to parents of the Dublin City School District Monday morning. The two girls, ages 3 and 10, were approached while they were selling Kool-Aid in the neighborhood.
They ran from the scene and straight home where their father called 911.
Police said the children did the right thing by running for help.
Marilyn Dolbeare is a nanny who heard about the case on the news.
"At first, I was a little scared because I watch two boys in this neighborhood, so I called the parents right away," said Dolbeare.
Another neighbor heard about it from a voicemail message.
"I reiterated that with my children - please make sure you always come straight home or go to a neighbor's home. Never ever go to a stranger's car, no matter how enticing," she said.
The suspect was a white male, driving a newer four-door black sedan with tinted windows and possibly a blue out-of-state license plate. The girls said he had a dog in the car, which was possibly a Chihuahua.
Police are asking anyone with information related to this incident to call 614-889-1112.
