Police say a 13-year-old girl was walking through the church parking lot on her way home from school when she was approached by a male.
The suspect told the girl, "I want to show you something."
The male tried to get the 13-year-old to follow him, but she ran away.
On Friday, May 31st, at approximately 7:00 a.m., a 12-year-old girl was waiting at a school bus stop located at Wilmington Road and East Burton Avenue.
While waiting at the bus stop, the girl was approached by a male suspect driving a light blue four door Honda.
The suspect asked the girl if she wanted to get into the vehicle and if she needed a ride.
The 12-year-old refused and the suspect drove away.
Troopers are requesting parents remind their children to never talk to strangers, and if possible, accompany children to and from school, or have them walk in groups.
