Franklin police say stranger approached girls on way to school

Posted: Updated:
FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) -

Franklin police are warning parents to be on alert after a man allegedly approached two young girls in the Fieldstone Farms subdivision Wednesday morning and offered them a ride.

Police said the 9-year-old girls were riding their bicycles to Hunters Bend Elementary School when they were approached at the intersection of Lexington Parkway and Essex Park Circle by a man in what is described as a green or gold cube-shaped vehicle with dark black bumpers and side mirrors.

The man lowered his car window and asked the girls if they were going to school, police said. He then asked if they knew their way and offered them a ride.

The girls rode away in the opposite direction and reported the incident to their parents.

Police say the man is described as white, about 40 to 50 years old, with a bald head, a 2 inch long gray goatee and a mole on his face.

The man was wearing a gray T-shirt and smoking a cigarette.

Police said they don't know the man's intentions, but they are increasing patrols near Franklin schools and asking parents to speak with their children about stranger safety.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 615-794-2513.
