Sgt. Warrant Mitchell with the Dallas Police Department suggests parents speak with their children and urge them to avoid walking alone.

“If you see a stranger and they’re approaching you, by all means hurriedly walk away. And if they look like they are walking behind you, take off running, start screaming. Do whatever you can to get the attention of another adult,” said Mitchell.
