St. Charles Police are warning residents to be on the lookout for a man who approached a 13-year-old student at a bus stop Tuesday.

Police said at 7:45 a.m. a 13-year-old girl was waiting for a school bus at Turnberry Road and Royal Queens Court when she was approached by a vehicle driven by a man with short gray hair and a scruffy beard.

The white male, who was estimated to be between 40 and 50 years old, was driving a light-colored tan or silver four-door vehicle, officials said in a Wednesday news release.

Police said the man asked the girl what school she attended then told her, "Get in the car."

The girl refused, police said, and the man said, "It's cold out so get in the car and I'll take you to school."

At that point another child at the bus stop said the school bus would be arriving in a minute and the man drove off.

Anyone with information should contact St. Charles Police at (630) 762-6967.
