An educator is stressing that a "stranger danger" incident in Manoa last week should prompt parents to be on guard.

In an e-mail to parent, Manoa Elementary Principal Kerry Higa said that the incident happened Wednesday when three children were walking home on Manoa Road and reported being followed by two men in a white Honda sedan.

According to the children's mother, a passenger in the vehicle got out at one point and started pursuing the three children, while the driver continued following the group as well.

The students broke into a run, and the two men eventually drove away.

The three children reported the incident to their parents, and a police report was filed.

The two men were described as being in their mid-20s to -30s, with thin builds and several tattoos.
