LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Lexington police have increased patrols after a middle school student says a man tried to lure her into his car with money.

Fayette County schools say a Morton Middle School student was walking to the bus stop near Lakeshore Drive and Altamont Court, when a man driving a small red car pulled over, held out some money and asked her if she wanted a hundred dollars.

When she said, “no,” he asked her to come to his car. That’s when she ran off, according to the school district.

School officials are reminding all students to be aware of their surroundings and to be cautious around strangers.
