Granite City police investigating after second child approached by stranger

 

 (KMOV)-- Police are warning parents after another incident of a man approaching a child happened in Granite City.

A parent told police that his daughter was walking around 6:35 p.m. Thursday on Springfield Road, near Fleming Street when a male driver stopped his vehicle and spoke to her. The male driver asked the girl, "Would you like to see my sling shot, or would you like to have my sling shot?" The girl told the man "no" and continued walking. The man laughed and drove to East Chain of Rocks Road and went westbound.

The man was described as a white male in his late 50's to early 60’s. He has white balding hair, light short beard, and possibly wearing glasses. He was seen driving a black Chevrolet Avalanche, with tinted windows, trailer hitch, and in clean factory condition.
