TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A suspicious encounter between a man and a child prompted the Marana Unified School District to send out an alert to parents. The alert went out Monday. The full text is below:

"Dear MUSD Parents/Guardians:

Because the safety of the children in the community is a top priority, we want to make you aware of a situation which was brought to our attention this morning.

On Saturday, October 27, a child walking in the area of W. Sunfire Drive and Twin Peaks Road was approached by a man. The man asked the child if the child wanted to come to his car to see his dog. The child refused and immediately left the area. The child was not harmed and the Marana Police Department was contacted.

The man is described as a Black male, approximate weight 180-200 lbs., approximate height 6’1”, mid-30’s in age, black hair cut flat, sideburns and a goat.

The man was driving a vehicle described as a single cab white pickup truck. 

If you know anything about this, or recognize the suspect’s description, please contact the Marana Police Department at 382-2000, 911, or 88-CRIME.

As always, we are committed to our students, staff and our community at large and respectfully request you to continue to assist us. Often our parents and community members can be our best eyes and ears in the protection of our students and our neighborhood. Also, please continue to discuss “Stranger Danger” and safety tips with your child such as walking together in groups, not talking to strangers, and being watchful of each other. 

Thank you. 


MUSD Administration."
