Teens report suspicious man in cargo van in Brighton Township

At approximately 10 p.m. Sunday, July 5, 2020, the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the 12000 block of Spencer Road in Brighton Township for a report of a suspicious vehicle.

According to a release from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, deputies interviewed two 14-year-old females who said they were walking westbound on Spencer Road when they were approached by a Ford cargo van, possibly white with tinted windows, green or black stripe on the sides, and a passenger side sliding door.

The teens told deputies that the van stopped on the wrong side of the road about a foot away from them. As both teens fled the area, they reported seeing a white male, between 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall with long hair and facial hair exiting the van while holding a cellphone with the camera light activated. The male allegedly yelled toward the females as they ran to a nearby home where they called 911. The van fled the area.
