Police Seek Suspicious Man After East Bridgewater Encounter

Police are looking for a suspicious man after an incident Wednesday in East Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

A mother called police around 3:20 p.m. to report that a man had approached her 11-year-old daughter as she was getting off the school bus on Thayer Avenue. He allegedly asked the girl twice if she wanted a ride.

The mother, Shayne Nacar, told police she did not know who the man was.

As the man turned around in a nearby driveway, Nacar took photos of his car, believed to be a silver Honda Civic with a model year from 2016 to 2018.

"In today's society, get pictures of stuff. I was praying it was someone she knew," Nacar said.

The man is described as being in his 20s or 30s with a beard and a medium build. He was wearing a red hat at the time.

"We have good people working on it," said William Patterson of the East Bridgewater Police Department. "I can't stress enough we need the public's help."

Anyone with information is asked to call 508-378-7223.
