Basel schools warn of child molester
Two schools in Basel have sent letters to parents warning them of a possible child molester on the streets.
The schools in the neighboring towns of Bettingen and Riehen say a girl was approached by a man with a dog who asked her to go with him. The girl refused and escaped on her scooter.
The schools are praising her reaction.
Police have upped their patrols around the schools and are asking parents to be alert.
The man is described as medium sized, dark complexion and was with a muzzled dog.
