SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On April 28, 2016 at approximately 0830 hours, State Police

were notified of a suspicious incident that occurred on Carlstrom Road in the

Town of Bristol. School officials reported to the State Police that a 13 year

old female student had reported that a man had approached her at her bus stop

and asked her if she wanted a ride to school.


State Police later interviewed the student, who advised she had been standing at

her bus stop when she saw a dark blue sedan, possibly a Honda, travelling down

Carlstrom Road at a slow rate of speed. The vehicle was being operated by an

older white male with white hair, a white beard, and a square chin. Additionally

the male was wearing what appeared to be a red & green baseball cap. The student

stated that the male offered her a ride to school to which she declined. The

student stated that her bus subsequently came around the corner and the male

rolled up his window and continued down the road and appeared to turn onto Lower

Notch Road. The student stated that she did not recognize the male or the

vehicle in question.


Vermont State Police are seeking information from anyone who has information on
