She was walking near Douglas Drive and Lake Road, heading to Bay Middle School when it happened. The man reportedly asked her "what's your favorite lollipop, mine is grape", then drove off.
A similar incident occurred on Monday near Dover Center Road near Heinen's. Police say a man driving a blue sedan approached an 11-year-old boy and asked the middle school student if he wanted a ride.
Officers are also investigating an incident that happened on Sept. 25. Police said a middle-aged white man in a dirty, white van pulled into a driveway on Wolf Road and asked a third grade boy if he wanted a ride to school.
