Police looking into ‘stranger danger’ incident

The Bloomfield Township Police Department and Bloomfield Hills School District are working together to investigate a suspicious incident that took place the afternoon of Wednesday, February 14.

While walking home from the bus stop in the area of Peabody Drive and Tall Oaks Road, two middle school-aged students were approached by a white man in a gray Ford van who asked if they had a phone. 

Uncomfortable with the situation, the two students did not engage with him and ran home, where they immediately told their parents what happened. 

The parents informed Bloomfield Township police, who were dispatched to the area but were unable to find the van, which was described as an older Ford with rust spots on the grill, and only had windows in the front of the vehicle. 

According to the students, the male was somewhere between 20-30 years old and wearing a backward baseball hat. 

Those with information are being asked to contact Jennifer Lower, school resource officer, at, or call the Bloomfield Township Police Department at 248.433.7755.
