    A man got out of his truck after following a 12-year-old walking her dog and chased the girl down the street in Bristol, police said. 

    On Friday at about 2 p.m., police were notified about a young girl walking her dog by the intersection of Concord Street and Fairfield Street when she was approached by a man driving a red pickup truck, Bristol Police said. 

    The man made a comment, possibly in another language, at the girl that she did not understand. When she ignored him, he continued driving east on Fairfield Street, police said. 

    When the girl made her way to Concord Street, the truck appeared again and began to slowly follow her, according to police. 

    The girl started to run towards her home when the man got out of his truck and started to chase her. At some point, the man stopped chasing her and got back into his pickup, police said.

    The girl was not hurt.

    The truck is described as a newer model, full-sized red pickup truck with silver bumpers and side steps.

    Police described the suspect as an older white man with brown and gray hair, of average weight and height and small round eyeglasses. 

    Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Officer Scott Verillo at (860) 584-3000.
