Pupils have been warned to be "vigilant" after a man attempted to grab a teenager and pull him towards a car.
The Metropolitan Police are investigating an incident at around 3.40pm last Thursday - January 13 - in Lowlands Road, Harrow.
Police said a 17-year-old boy reported that an adult man attempted to "grab him and pull him towards a stationary car" near Harrow-on-the-Hill station.
The teenager resisted and the car drove off without him.
Officers from the Met’s North West BCU are making enquiries to establish the circumstances and identify the person responsible, police said.
The alleged offence took place near several schools, including Harrow College and Harrow High School.
An email about the incident from John Lyon School claimed the victim was a Harrow College pupil; this has since been denied.
