A man approached a 10-year old on E. Bloomfield Avenue and North Alexander Street on Friday, around 3:40 pm. The location can be seen here on Yahoo! maps. The man, believed to be around 70 years old, offered the girl a ride in his rusty, reddish van with tinted windows. She refused and hid in a backyard.
According to Lt. Gordon Young, the man was Caucasian, bald and clean shaven, and had a few gray hairs.
Parents are cautioned that even though there haven’t been any similar incidents, they should have children walk or play in groups if they are unaccompanied by an adult.
