Farmington Hills police investigate suspicious person report

Second stranger danger incident reported in two weeks

By: Jonathan Shead | Farmington Press | Published June 15, 2020


Police are investigating a suspicious person and possible stranger danger report that an unknown suspect approached a child at approximately 4 p.m. June 14. 

The incident occurred in the area of Dohany Drive, in a subdivision between Power and 10 Mile roads. 

According to a news release, the child was riding his bike in the subdivision when the suspect, described as an white man between the ages of 55 and 65, wearing black glasses, stopped his vehicle — a green SUV, possibly a Mercedes G-Wagon — and asked the child if he wanted a ride. 

The child said no and left to tell a parent, who reported the incident to 911. The child told the parent that no physical contact was attempted or made by the suspect. 

This is the second suspicious person report called into the station since June 1 in which a child was approached. Another child was approached by a suspicious person at approximately 5:30 p.m. June 5 in the area of Rensselaer and Emmett streets, in a subdivision near Inkster Road, between Shiawassee and Eight Mile roads. 

Police identified and arrested a suspect they believe to be involved in the June 5 incident five days later. 

“We have no information (the two incidents) are connected in any way,” Farmington Hills Police Chief Jeff King said. King added that the June 5 investigation was able to develop over a couple days, with a few developments breaking pretty quickly,  leading to an arrest. This incident still has “significantly less information” they’ve been able to develop, he said.

As detectives increase patrols in the area and investigate, they are seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspect involved. Anyone with information regarding the incident or who lives in the area and has video surveillance footage should contact the Farmington Hills Police Department at (248) 871-2610.
