Students approached on way to school

Elyria police and school officials are investigating a Monday incident where a man, who may be a registered sex offender, approached two female students who were on their way to school. Police are still ironing out details of the incident, but school officials said the two students showed up at the high school Monday morning and reported that the man had “approached them” on their way to school.

Elyria police Lt. Andy Eichenlaub said an officer is still investigating the girls’ claims, but also said it was unconfirmed whether the suspect was actually a registered sex offender. The girls told school officials they were approached somewhere in the vicinity of the high school, Eichenlaub said.
