STAMFORD - Stamford police are investigating an incident where a man tried to lure a 12-year-old girl into his car after school yesterday.

Police say the man drove up to the girl at her bus stop and asked her to get in the car twice, and the second time, tried to lure her with candy.

It happened at around 3:15 p.m. near the corner of Intervale Road and Newfield Avenue.

Police say the girl ran home and that the car followed her for a short time.

The girl described the vehicle as a gray car with tinted windows and says it appeared as though the man may be living in the car.

Police are stepping up patrols in the area.
