'Moses' and Friend Give Kids Donuts Outside School, Officials Raise Alarm

| by Michael Allen

School administrators in Tenafly, N.J. are warning parents after a man drove up in a Lamborghini dressed as Moses outside Tenafly Middle School.

The children reportedly flocked around "Moses," who held up signs for educational rights for special-needs children while another man handed out donuts to the kids.

According to My 9 New Jersey, several of the children had their pictures taken with the red sports car.

The man handing out the donuts was Jon Singer, who has a teen with autism and Phelan-McDermid syndrome. He is fighting with local school officials over the proper education for his 17-year-old girl, Rebecca.

Singer identified "Moses" as his friend David Zucker, who owns the Lamborghini. Singer also brought along Rebecca to watch the "event."

“Rebecca had a great time. All the kids had a great time. I don’t understand why people are upset,” Singer told NewJersey.com.

Irregardless of their cause, police officers asked the men to move away from the school, while principal Ann Powell emailed parents to put them on alert about "stranger danger."

“We encourage all parents to speak with your children about ‘stranger danger.' Please stress that students should never speak with strangers, should never get in a stranger's car, and should never accept food from a stranger," said Powell's email.

The school did not go into lockdown.
