WILKES-BARRE — Police in Wilkes-Barre say a man exposed himself to two Meyers High School students Tuesday morning.

Officers tell us the man, driving a dark red Buick, asked the students if they wanted a ride near Hanover and Church Streets. They said no, but the man kept following them.

Police say they refused a ride three times before the driver exposed himself then left.

The school district posted a notice about the incident on district website to alert parents.

    How is posting on the district website an “alert”?? That is not an appropriate or timely notification to parents. A serious message, such as the one regarding today’s incident, needs to be relayed to parents quickly and responsibly. If I can receieve an automated phonecall stating my child has a 2-hr delay,…then how is it conscienable that I couldn’t recieve a similar message regarding an attempted child abduction outside my daughter’s school?

      Eddie you took the words out of my mouth. Why were we not alerted properly to something as serious as this. I see something about a man being picked up in Olyphant pa. Is this the same guy?:
