Clawson police are searching for a man accused of lurking around an elementary school overnight. They released a picture of the man, who was lurking around class time.

A teacher says she noticed the man trying to enter the building, and walking past her window to the southwest corner of the school.

We're told he pulled on one fo the west side doors at Kenwood Elementary, and then tried another after the first was locked.

A teacher told him through the glass he needed to go to the front door of the school, but was concerned when she learned he never went to the front door.

The man is believed to be in his 40s, about 180 pounds, last seen wearing a greenish-blue long-sleeve shirt, dark jeans and dark shoes.

Officers say they watched over the shoot at the end of the day but never spotted the man.
