Police in Burlington, Massachusetts, are investigating two separate reports of a suspicious man who allegedly approached two children in two different neighborhoods.
The first incident occurred on Wednesday night when a 13-year-old girl said she was approached by a man driving a white four-door sedan who asked about the dog she was walking, police said.
Then on Saturday night, another 13-year-old girl was reportedly approached by a man who was driving a black SUV and offered to give her a ride home, police said.
Police believe the same man was involved in both incidents that took place in the area of Phillip Avenue and Fox Hill Road.
