Farmington Hills Police investigate possible ‘stranger danger’

Farmington Hills Police are conducting increased patrols in the area of Old Forge Lane and Brandywine, after a child reported being approached on Tuesday by a suspicious person.

According to police, the April 30 incident happened at around 8 a.m. in the subdivision, which is in the area of 12 Mile and Farmington Roads. The child was standing at a bus stop when a black or dark blue sedan, possibly a Subaru, stopped.

Farmington Hills Stranger Danger

The driver, described as an Asian man in his 20s with black and blue hair, and wearing a white shirt and tie, reportedly asked the child to “come over here”. The child ran home, and the man drove away.

Police say they have no information about other children being approached in the Farmington Hills area. A possible “stranger danger” incident investigated last month turned out to be a misunderstanding.

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