FLORAL PARK - Police say an unidentified man managed to slip into an elementary school in Floral Park earlier this week.

Detectives say the man was able to enter Our Lady of Victory School on Bellmore Street, went down several stairs and headed toward a bathroom.

News 12 is told that a scheduled fire drill then sounded, prompting the evacuation of everyone in the building - including the intruder.

The man was then spotted by students and faculty outside the building. After an attempt to stop the man, he was able to flee.
