Last Updated: 39 days ago
BROOMFIELD, Colo. - Broomfield police said they are investigating two reports of strangers approaching girls near Legacy High School.
Investigators said the first incident occurred last Wednesday, Oct. 23, at approximately 4:45 p.m. near West 135th Avenue and Lowell Boulevard.
In that case, a 14-year-old girl told police a man offered her a ride home and didn't drive off until she refused twice.
That man was described as being white or Hispanic, in his 40s, with graying mid-length hair and a gray mustache. He was driving a white, four-door Jeep (possibly a Cherokee or Patriot), with dark tinted windows and gray paint that resembled camouflage from the door handles down, police said.
Investigators said the second incident was Tuesday by the school.
In that case, a man drove up to two girls and asked them to come talk to him. When they refused, he followed them until one girl went inside her home, police said.
That man was described as a Hispanic man in his late teens or early 20s driving an older model, white, rectangular shaped vehicle with a "spoiler" and possibly tinted lights. Police said the driver was described as being approximately 6 feet tall, skinny, with black hair. He was wearing blue jeans, a gray zip-up sweatshirt, and a green and gray hat.
Broomfield police said there have been other similar incidents in the metro area, but they did not release details.
If you have any information that could lead to the identity of the driver in either of these incidents, contact Detective Dale Hammell at 303-464-5733.
