Clawson — Police are investigating two possible Sunday incidents of stranger danger.

In the first, two 10-year-old boys were walking home from a school between 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Sunday when they saw a small black SUV that appeared to be following them, according to authorities.

The boys ran home together and told an adult who called police. The boys described the man in the vehicle as an elderly white male who was wearing dark glasses, officials said. He had gray sideburns and wore a black shirt.

A couple of hours later, police received a call about a young girl being approached by a stranger.

The 9-year-old was near the corner of Elmsford and Washington at about 6:30 p.m Sunday when she was approached by a stranger. The man asked the girl to pet her dog, police said. She ran home and told her mother what had happened.

Authorities said the girl told them the man was driving a black Kia Soul. She described the man as a Hispanic male.

Officials said a vehicle matching the description given by the girl was seen near the corner of Highland and Custer.

 Police said they are not sure if the two incidents are related. Anyone with information about the two incidents should call the Clawson Police Department at (248) 524-3477.
