    Police are investigating after a man approached a girl as she was walking in Newington this afternoon and told her to get into his car.

    The girl told police she was walking on Willard Avenue by Garfield Street in Newington this afternoon when a man stopped his car beside her and told her to get into the vehicle, police said.

    When the girl refused, the man asked her a few questions and started to get out of the vehicle and approach her, police said.

    When the girl threatened to call police, the driver got back into his car and fled north on Willard Avenue, according to police.

    The girl described the man as tan, skinny, in his mid-forties and between 5-feet-8 and 5-feet-10. She said he has short curly black hair and was wearing a dark T-shirt and khaki long shorts. 

    He did not have any facial hair.

    Police said the man was alone in a newer style black Chevrolet four-door sporty vehicle.

    Police checked the area and were not able to find anyone matching the description.

    Anyone with information should call Master Police Officer James G. Johnson at 860-666-8445.
