Luring Incident in North Fremont

March 10th, 2015 by Cara

Fremont resident and mother Ruth alerted Fremont Universe that her daughter was involved in a luring incident late last week. KOMO news briefly covered the incident here.

Two men tried to lure her 13 year old daughter into their dark green Suburban last Thursday March 5th around 3pm on the premise of showing her their puppies. The girl was approached on the 4300 block of Palatine Ave North. Ruth says her daughter ”ran and got help from one of our neighbors who called the police.” The police did not find the luring suspects.

Ruth encourages the community to “Stay safe, be alert!”

From SPD: Personal Safety Training

April 27th, 2010 by Athima Chansanchai

Living in cities requires a certain amount of awareness. Take it from me, having lived in small-town Mississippi and suburban Florida, living in urban environs takes a little adjustment. I think I can say I’ve picked up some things having spent years as a resident of DC, Baltimore, New York (Manhattan) and now Seattle.

For instance, I vary my routine quite a bit, use timers for my living room and porch lights, alert my neighbors when I’ll be out of town, and rarely walk in my neighborhood by myself after dark. I also try not to linger getting in and out of my car and make sure it’s pretty clear before I get out.

But I think everyone can learn more – and should be open to good advice from reputable sources.
