URBANA -- Police are urging parents to talk to their kids about Stranger Danger. They're investigating three incidents reportedly happening to two children.

Two incidents involve a middle-schooler who told police a man in a light-red SUV approached the student Monday and Tuesday and told the student to get in the car. One of the days, a female passenger was also in the car.

The third incident happened Wednesday morning. Police say a 7-year old boy was approached by a man in a blue van near Beslin and Wright streets. All incidents are under investigation.
