Police say he didn't grab her, or coax her to come into his car.
A 12-year-old girl walking to West Frederick Middle School Thursday morning encountered a suspicious man in a car. She told police that the man pulled up to her in the area of Burck and West South Streets, and made some lewd gestures and comments. He drove away, but returned later to continue the conversation. She ignored him and he left.
Officers say at no time, did the man try to entice the girl into his vehicle, or grab her.
He's described as a white male, with blond hair, a full beard and a mustache, about 30 to 40 years of age. He was wearing a dress shirt and tie.
His vehicle was a burgundy, four-passenger car with a silver-chrome trim and brown interior.
West Frederick Middle School personnel were made aware of this incident.
Anyone with information on this individual is asked to call Officer Scott McGregor with the Frederick Police at 301-600-6237. They can also remain anonymous and leave their information at 301-600-TIPS (8477).
As a safety precaution, authorities say children walking to school should be accompanied by an adult, or with one or more of their friends.
