Naugatuck police are investigating reports of a suspicious man with a small child approaching a teenage girl and asking her to get in his car and ride with him over the bridge.
Police said they received a report around 2:30 p.m. Thursday about a suspicious vehicle and person around the 500 block of North Church Street, near Bradbury Street.
A 15-year-old girl told police that she was in the driveway around 2:15 p.m. to get something out of a vehicle when a man pulled up and asked her to “come into the vehicle and go for a ride with him over the bridge,” police said.
The teen ran into her house and immediately told a family member who called police.
The man looked like he was in his mid-30s, with an average build, short black hair and no facial hair, according to police. The teen also saw what looked like a small child in the passenger seat.
The man was driving a “newer style” four-door black car that police said appeared to be “clean looking.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Naugatuck Police at 203-729-5221 or the NPD Confidential Tip Line at 203-720-1010.
