PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. - A Pleasantville High School student was approached twice Thursday afternoon by a suspicious taxi driver, according to Superintendent Mary Fox-Alter.

Fox-Alter said the female student was leaving the high school when she was approached by a man in a white taxi cab who offered the student a ride. After the student refused and continued to walk away, the driver followed her and asked for directions near the Bedford Road School.

Fox-Alter said that no criminal behavior was reported and that Pleasantville Police have been notified.

In late January, two Pleasantville Middle School boys were approached while standing on the corner of Washington Ave. and Manville Road by a man in a white car with the word 'TAXI' hand-painted on the side in black paint.

The driver, described as an elderly man with a beard and dark hair, asked the boys if they wanted a ride, which they refused.  

Police have not confirmed if the two incidents are related.
