(05/15/17) - Two school districts sent out letters to parents following reports of separate stranger danger reports on Friday.

A letter sent home to parents in the Kearsley School District Friday says a student witnessed a man calling kids inappropriate names. It happened at the corner of Covert Road and Risedorph in Genesee Township.

According to the letter, the man was parked in a black Chevy S-10 with over-sized tires and antenna, with a red ball cap on.

Burton police tell ABC12 News they have identified the man in question and have questioned him. At this point, it's unclear what his motives were.

Meanwhile, police in Richfield Township are looking into the report of a possible incident from a Davison elementary student on May 12.

A fourth grader told police a man driving a black truck pulled up to her as she waited for the bus in the Tiger Run subdivision. The bus appeared as the man rolled down his window. He then drove off.

The man was described as an "older man with brown hair, a 'clean shaved' beard and wearing sunglasses," per the district's statement.

Police have not connected the two incidents as the same individual. They are reminding parents to talk to your children about what to do if they are approached by a stranger.
