Schools warn parents after pupils are chased by knifeman

Schools in Gloucestershire have warned parents after a group of pupils were chased by a man with a knife after taking pictures of them from a white van.

THE 11-year-old children were chased by the knifeman after school on Tuesday, November 3, prompting Stroud High School to write to parents warning them of the danger.

The letter states that some Year 7 students – believed to be three girls and a boy – were chased by a man in GL6 (Stroud).

“The students believe they had previously seen the man in a white van taking photos of them.

“The incident has been reported to the police and all schools in the area have received notifications so we can remind students about the need to take precautions over their safety.

“We have asked all tutors to talk to their groups about their safety and steps they can take to ensure they are not vulnerable while out and about.

“This incident was not reported by a member of Stroud High School, but due to the proximity of the event, I wanted to share the information with you so you could take appropriate steps to talk to your children as well.

“Please do get in touch with us if you have any concerns relating to safety and if you know anything about the specific events please contact police.”
