A unknown minibus approached three middle school students at their bus stop in Ronkonkoma early yesterday.
The incident reportedly happened at 7:15 a.m. when a male driver asked for one student by name and requested they get on the bus. He told them they would get to school faster if they went with him.
The students did not recognize the driver or the bus so they refused and the man drove away. A few minutes later, the students’ assigned district bus picked them up and drove them to school.
A police report was made with the Suffolk County Police Department and district security was notified.
