The Killeen school district said it boosted police presence Friday at Skipcha Elementary School after a stranger threatened to kidnap a student Thursday, according to the school's Facebook page.
School officials said a student notified campus administration that a stranger threatened to abduct him near the playground area at around 10:45 a.m. Thursday.
In a call to parents, Skipcha principal Jane Apodaca said the campus had beefed up security as a response to the allegation.
"I investigated the report and have a police presence at the campus today as a precautionary measure," she said, according to a call transcript. "As you know, the safety of our students is the most important thing and I wanted to make you aware."
