A Mid-Michigan school and police are sending a warning to parents after a student was reportedly approached by a stranger while waiting at a bus stop.  

The incident happened on June 8 near Thornton Avenue and Dayton Street in Flint.

Investigators met with a 13-year-old girl who said a car stopped in the roadway while she was in the front yard of her home waiting for the school bus. The male driver engaged her in conversation and asked if she wanted to get in the car. 

The girl declined and the man drove away. Police said he did not make any physical attempt to get the girl in his vehicle. 

The suspect is described as a white male, 30-40 years old, average build with medium length hair and a brown beard. The vehicle was only described as a late model 4 door white sedan. 

The Flint Township Police Department is urging all parents and children to remain on guard during the summer months. If you have any information, call Detective Rick Pinter at 810-600-3250.

Superintendent Eddie Kindle of Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools also sent a letter to parents warning them of the situation.

Kindle said he wants to remind parents to talk with their children about strangers and being aware of their surroundings. 

Flint Township police said on Friday, June 10 the suspect in this case has been spotted again in the same area.

On June 9, police said the man told an adult walking along the road that he was looking for a girl. He then drove away and was not seen again. More on that case HERE
