2 stranger danger incidents reported this week in Dearborn Heights

Children unharmed by man who approached them in silver Chevy Malibu

DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. – Two stranger danger incidents involving Dearborn Heights students have been reported this week. 

Superintendent John Fazer said increased police presence will be at District 7 schools after a man approached three students this week, telling them they needed to go with him because their parents were in the hospital. 

The first incident happened Tuesday afternoon when a man in a silver Chevy Malibu approached two children who were walking on Croissant Street near Bedford Elementary. The children did not go with the man, and were not harmed. 

The second incident happened Thursday morning at Hanover and Harding streets. A student was walking to Polk Elementary when a man in a silver Chevy Malibu approached him with the same story about his parents. The student also did not go with the man. 

The only description of the man given by the district is that he is white with a light-colored goatee.
