FLINT (WJRT) (10-12/2017) - The Flint Police Department will be stepping up patrols around schools on Friday after a Freeman Elementary School student reported being approached by a stranger Thursday.

The student told administrators that a man dressed in all black clothing got out of a black four-door car and started following him to school, according to a letter from Flint Superintendent Bilal Tawwab.

The stranger stopped following the student at Ogema Avenue and did not enter school grounds. The student reported the incident to administrators right after he arrived at school and they immediately notified the Flint Police Department.

Flint Police Det. Tyrone Booth said the police department plans to step up patrols Friday morning to ward off any similar incidents. In addition, the department's school resource officers will be visible moving around school buildings.
