The Livonia Police Department is alerting residents after a stranger danger report at a bus stop near Orangelawn and Garden.

Around 4:50 p.m. on September 17, a man reportedly asked some children at the bus stop to help him find his dog.

The kids told the man "no" and ran to their homes.

The man left in a red older-model sedan. He is described as a white man, approximately 35-years-old, bald with a light-colored /blonde goatee. He was wearing a red shirt at the time.

Parents living in the area said they are disturbed by this incident.

"It's scary, I used to let my kids out in the yard and I've never worried about them, ever.  They play outside by themselves all the time, now I'm not so sure I want them out here," said Natalie Underwood. 

Underwood and other neighbors plan to keep their eyes open and be alert for suspicious people. 

Police are also investigating two similar incidents in the are of 5 Mile and Eckles that took place before the start of school.

The children who were approached range in age between 10 and 14.

If you have any information that can help police, you're asked to call the Livonia Police Department at 734-466-2470 or call 911.
