The man is described as being dark-skinned, 6′ to 6’2″, and between 20 and 30 years old.

FTPD Investigative Division and School resource Officers are instigating the matter, according to the alert.

Extra uniformed and plainclothes police officers have been deployed to the school, the alert said.

“While at this time there is no apparent threat to the safety and security of the school we ask that area residents and parents stay vigilant to suspicious behavior,” the alert said. ” If you see something suspicious or out of the ordinary contact the Franklin Township Police Department Dispatch Center immediately at 732-873-2300.”
