REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Redford Township police issued a stranger danger alert Wednesday after a group of children were approached while waiting for the school bus.

The incident happened at the intersection of Alton and Ivanhoe avenues.

A 10-year-old girl and her 8-year-old brother were at the bus stop Wednesday at 8:10 a.m. when a man pulled up in an older blue car that looked like an old taxi.

The children said he talked to them and had some disturbing things to say.

There were two other children at the stop. One ran to tell her mother, who called Redford police.

Officials tried to find the man, but they haven't been successful.

The 10-year-old girl told her bus driver about the incident, and the bus driver also called police.
