Sheriff's officials said on Thursday that both the Logan Elm Local School District and a boy who allegedly was approached by a stranger responded the right way in a difficult situation.

Police said that John Guisinger, 62, approached a 12-year-old boy at a bus stop on Wednesday and attempted to lure the boy to his car.

According to investigators, the boy ran and told his family.

"He was very smart. Very smart kid. Took off running, got a hold of his mom and his grandma right away, and they called the proper authorizes," said Pickaway County sheriff's Detective John Strawser.

Logan Elm officials also took fast precautions after the alleged incident, CrimeTracker 10's Jeff Hogan reported.

The superintendent called all parents and told them about the incident and gave them tips to prevent future incidents.

The district asked parents and students to not approach or talk to individuals that they do not know, always walk with friends or family members and have a place to go for safety.
