Written By: Robert Cox

MAMARONECK, NY — A possible luring incident at Mamaroneck High School was a misunderstanding, according to Village of Mamaroneck police.

On Tuesday at 2:53 pm, a Mamaroneck High School student reported that while she was standing in the Starbuck’s parking lot, a middle aged black male with a Jamaican accent said to her “do you need a ride”. The student said no and ignored the man as he remained in the parking lot looking around angrily. The male was operating a Gray / Silver Mercedes Benz G25 with yellow New York plates. The male then circled around the area and eventually drove away towards Larchmont on W Boston Post Rd. Upon further investigation, it was determined that the suspicious male & vehicle in question was actually a Lyft driver looking for his fare. This Lyft diver was ordered by the parent of another student, but the driver was unable to locate her, and the fare was eventually cancelled. This incident appears to have been a misunderstanding.
