Suspicious situation reported at a bus stop


December 11, 2018, Canton, MI - This morning at approximately 7:20 a.m., a female student of Plymouth-Canton Community Schools was waiting at the bus stop located near Ardsley & Burnham Roads. The student observed a vehicle pass by the bus stop three separate times-- the third time he stopped the vehicle, opened the door, put one foot on the road and said “come here.” The student replied “no” and immediately ran away screaming. She then heard the vehicle speed away. The student made it back safely to her house and informed her mother as to what had just occurred. An independent witness near the bus stop confirms he heard a scream and a car speeding away.

The driver is described as a 25-year old white male wearing a black hoodie, black pants, black hat, and dark blue Nike shoes. He did not have any facial hair, and wore a black hat with a mask covering his eyes. His vehicle is described as an older white 4-door car with rust along the bottom. The vehicle left in an unknown direction.

Police and school officials encourage parents to use this as an opportunity to discuss safety reminders and “stranger danger” with your children. All suspicious incidents or encounters should be reported immediately.

The Canton Police Department will be increasing patrols in all neighborhoods and school zones. Anyone with additional information, or that may have observed this suspicious vehicle, is encouraged to contact the Canton Police Department at 734/394-5400.
