The Arlington Central School District has alerted residents about an incident in which a suspicious man driving a van approached a middle school student in Arlington.

The incident occurred around 3 p.m. on Rochdale Road in the Town of Poughkeepsie.

Town of Poughkeepsie Police said the man, who was wearing a baseball cap and windbreaker, was driving a dark green older construction-style van.

The driver, described as an older white male with scruffy facial hair, told the student that his parents had asked him to pick him up. Not knowing the driver, the student ran home.

The van had dirty tires and white lettering on the passenger side, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Town of Poughkeepsie police at 485-3666.
