Cloquet police are investigating a report that a man twice asked a Washington Elementary School student to get inside his semi truck after school on Friday.
According to a news release from Deputy Chief Terry Hill, the incident took place at 3:20 p.m. Friday as the student was waiting to be picked up outside the school. The 9-year-old boy said a man delivering items to the school asked him on two occasions to get inside the truck to “see something.” The boy did not comply. He reported the incident to his grandmother when she arrived to pick him up, and she took down the company name and contact information from the side of the truck. The family contacted police later that afternoon.
Cloquet police and school officials are investigating.
