Police: Teen Girl Accosted by Male Driver

The man reportedly asked the girl if she wanted a ride

Police in Groveland, Massachusetts, said a 14-year-old girl was approached by a suspicious male driver who asked her if she needed a ride on Wednesday.

At 11:49 a.m., police said the girl was exiting the school bus when she was approached by the male operator of a vehicle as she walked on Washington Street near Main Street. The student said the driver pulled up alongside her and asked "Do you want a ride?" before driving off.
