Stranger in car asking questions makes 10-year-old girl 'uncomfortable,' police say

MADISON, Wis. - A 10-year-old reported a stranger stopped to ask her questions Wednesday while she was walking her dog on Madison’s near east side, officials said.

The girl was walking on Elizabeth Street around 4:25 p.m. when the man, who was in a car, asked her things like what grade she was in and what school she goes to, according to a release.

The girl told police the man made her feel uncomfortable, so she ignored him, went home and told a parent what happened, police said.

The man is described as white, in his 50s with thinning gray and brown hair and a birthmark or scar on his right cheek. He was driving a newer black car.
