Suffolk County police are searching for a man who attempted to sign a first-grade student out of a Ridge school this week, police said.

The man—who police said is in his early 20s or late 30s—entered Ridge Elementary School on Wednesday, police said, and asked to sign out the 6-year-old student, but school personnel immediately denied his request. The man then said he would go get the child’s mother from the car but he never returned. Police were then notified.

Police said the man was wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with white drawstrings and a small white logo on the left chest, blue jeans and silver sneakers.

Anyone with information about this incident or can identify the suspect is asked to call the Seventh Precinct at 631-852-8730 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
