STAMFORD - Parents in Stamford are fearing for their children's safety following reports of a suspicious man on Shadow Ridge Road.

The Davenport Ridge Elementary School and Rippowam Middle School sent letters home to parents Tuesday notifying them of the incident. It said that students were approached by a white male at their bus stop on two separate occasions Monday.
