TRUMBULL, Conn. -- Police are trying to locate a suspicious man who approached two children in an elementary school neighborhood in Trumbull, and who may be wanted for a separate unrelated incident in Fairfield.

Police said that they were notified at around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17 that a car was driving suspiciously on Gatehouse Road, which is located near Tashua Elementary School in Trumbull.

The car was described as a gray BMW convertible with the top down, which was driven by a white man between the ages of 45 and 55 years old, with a slim to medium build and light to balding hair.

The man stopped the car and started to talk with the children, who were playing in their front yard, police said. When a parent stepped out to speak to the driver, the car drove off.

A similar incident was reported in Fairfield late Saturday night, with the same type of vehicle and similar operator description, police said.

Anyone who may have information about the incident is asked to contact the Trumbull Police Department directly at (203) 261-3665, or via the anonymous and confidential tip line located at the Trumbull Police website .
