GRAPEVINE - A warning for students and their parents.

Police in Hurst and Grapevine are investigating suspicious activity around their elementary schools.

The boy took off running but did not recall a description of the car.

The next day at Harrison Lane Elementary in Hurst a 9-year-old reported a black van driving slowly toward her before the driver exited and began approaching her.

The girl ran home and told her parents.
