FARMINGTON HILLS — The Farmington Hills Police Department is investigating a report that a suspicious person called two young children over to his car in the area of Claymore Street and 14 Mile Road at approximately 6 p.m. Oct. 31.

The person is described as a white man, 30 years old, with black hair and a black goatee.

He was driving a black sedan, possibly a Honda. This individual stopped his car in the roadway, rolled down his window, and asked if the children wanted candy on Halloween night.

He motioned for the kids to approach his vehicle. A parent observed this interaction and yelled at the driver, who then drove off.

The release states that detectives are actively investigating the report.

“We will continue to work with the schools, and officers will be conducting increased special attention patrols in this area and at area bus stops,” Farmington Hills Police Chief Jeff King stated in the release.

The police have no information on any similar incidents in the Farmington Hills area, according to the release.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Farmington Hills Police Department at (248) 871-2610.
