LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) – Police in Alexandria, Va., have received reports of an elderly man approaching children over the past few weeks.

Alexandria Police say a white man, about 60 to 70 years old with gray hair, reportedly approached a boy who was walking his dog on Jan. 31 in the 400 block of Crown View Lane. A second incident occurred on Feb. 7 when two boys were walking home from George Mason Elementary School, according to police.

The man did not attempt to get any of the children into his car — described as an older model green Subaru wagon — or to go anywhere with him.

In both cases, police say he spoke with the unaccompanied children and then left the area.

Authorities say the man did not commit a crime, but police would like to speak with him.

Officials encourage parents to remind children to never walk away with a stranger or get into a car of someone they do not know.

Anyone with information related to these incidents are asked to call or email Detective Ryan Clinch at 703-746-6673 or ryan.clinch@alexandriava.gov.
