Hamden Police are searching for a man who is accused of suspiciously approaching a group of students at their bus stop Monday.

Police say they met with a 15-year-old Hamden girl for a report of “suspicious activity”. The teen reported she, along with two other students, were approached by an older male who asked the group to get into his car. 

According to the girl who spoke with police, the man then got out of his vehicle and began “making noises”. That’s when the teens say the group ran away from the bus stop

Officials are describing the male as a 45-year-old African-American, approximately 5’8″ with a thin build. The person in question has visible scabs, according to police. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact Officer Mark Atwater of the Hamden Police Department at (203) 230-4036.
