The children were standing at a bus stop when a driver stopped and asked if they wanted a ride. After they refused, the driver stayed for a short time before driving away. He did not get out of his car or try to lure the children into it.

The driver is described as white, 20-30 years old with longer, dark hair that covered his ears. He has a clean-shaven face and was behind the wheel of a blue, four-door sedan, possibly a KIA, with a Michigan State University license plate.

Officers will conduct patrols in the area as the investigation continues.

The department has no information on any similar incidents in the Farmington Hills area. Anyone with information should call 248-871-2610.
