Bethlehem school officials said a man was seen taking pictures of children outside an elementary school Tuesday.
The incident happened around 3:15 p.m. as students were leaving Clearview Elementary School at 2121 Abington Rd. in Bethlehem.
He was described as a middle-aged white man, balding on top with gray hair on the sides, wearing a dark blue polo shirt.
Officials said the man took off after he was spotted by an adult who was out with the children.
A report was filed with the Bethlehem Police Department, and officers plan more patrols in the area.
School officials urge parents to review safety precautions with their children and to immediately call 911 if you see any suspicious activity.
On Friday, school officials said a man approached a Broughal Middle School student while walking home on Broadhead Avenue and said the child's parents had paid him to pick up the student, and waved a $20 bill.
That man was described as a light-skinned male driving a white car, possibly a Ford with tinted windows that resembled a taxi.
Bethlehem police have been notified of this event and ask for help locating the vehicle.
