Girls approached at Pr. William bus stops
Two middle school girls told school officials that a stranger offered them rides as they stood at separate bus stops in the Dumfries area Monday morning, then fled when they declined to get into his van, Prince William County Police said.
Neither girl was injured and the man did not get out of the van during the reported incidents, police said.
Police issued a lookout for a black male in his 30s with short black hair and a thin mustache who was wearing a shirt with red markings. The man drove a dirty silver van with tinted windows and a dent on the rear passenger side bumper, police said.
The girls, students at Graham Park Middle School, said they were approached between 7:35 a.m. and 7:45 a.m., police said. The first was at her school bus stop at Main and Graham streets when the suspect pulled up, offered a ride then sped away after the girl declined, according to police.
A man fitting the same description made another offer to a girl about half a mile away as she stood at a stop at Main Street and Mine Road; he fled when she refused the ride, the girl told police.
Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to call Crime Solvers at 703-670-3700
or 1-866-411-TIPS. Callers may remain anonymous and could earn a cash reward of up to $1,000, police said.
