NORTH MERRICK - Police are reporting two new cases of "stranger danger" in Nassau County.

Officials say both incidents happened in North Merrick.

The Bellmore-Merrick School District says on Tuesday evening an older man in a red car approached a student on Kensington Avenue.

Then yesterday afternoon at the corner of Thelma Avenue and Murray Place, a student says she was followed home by a driver who appeared to be in his mid-20s.

Neither student was hurt.

The incidents follow two other "stranger danger" incidents last week in Seaford and North Massapequa.
