Suspicious person in Oro Valley

January 18, 2017

On January 18, 2017 at approximately 7:40 a.m., in the area of Glover and Verch, the Oro Valley Police Department (OVPD) responded to a suspicious activity call. A male attempted to contact a minor child at a bus stop. The male was described as an older Caucasian with mostly gray hair, a mustache and wearing glasses. The driver of the vehicle sat at the bus stop area for a few minutes, rolled down his window and twice told the child to walk to his vehicle. His vehicle was described as a black (oxidizing paint), possibly a two-door sedan.

OVPD would like to remind children of some safety tips:
• Never approach strangers sitting in a car,
• Never get into a car with a stranger, and
• Always tell an adult if a stranger tries to approach you.

If you have any information on this incident please call 911, 88-crime or (520) 229-4900.
