    Hamden police are investigating after receiving reports that two women approached a 10-year-old girl on separate occasions and offered her a ride. 

    Police responded to Spring Glen School on Whitney Avenue Thursday after receiving a report and spoke with the principal and a 10-year-old girl. 

    The girl said that a woman in a vehicle approached her as she was walking from her home to the bus stop, at the corner of Putnam Avenue and Clifford Street, and asked if she wanted a ride, police said. 

    The girl said the woman had short hair and a “sweet voice.” 

    Police said there was a similar incident four weeks earlier when a woman in what was described as a white van approached the girl at the same bus stop and asked if she wanted a ride. 

    The 10-year-old could not identify the women and did not have any additional descriptions. 

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Hamden Police Department Special Victims Unit at (203) 230-4040.
