RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- A 9-year-old boy was approached Wednesday afternoon by a balding white man driving a white van who "yelled to the boy 'get over here,'" according to a report at Hamlet Hub.  

The boy fled on foot to his home during the incident at 4:45 p.m., police told Hamlet Hub.

Ridgefield Police ask anyone who has information about the incident to call 203-438-6531.

This is the latest in a series of incidents in Fairfield County in which a suspicious man driving a van has approached a child. Other incidents have been reported in towns including Darien, Redding, Norwalk and Fairfield, although some incidents have later been ruled to be false alarms.
