The Washington County Sheriff's Office is warning about a suspicious incident involving a man with a dog and two young girls.
A concerned mother told deputies that the man stopped his car in front of two children walking home in the 8800 block of NW Ash Street in an unincorporated part of Washington County near Portland.
The girls told deputies that an older white Subaru Outback pulled up and blocked them from crossing the street. The car’s back driver side window rolled down. The driver window then rolled down revealing a white male, 40 to 50 years old with grey or white hair, blue eyes and possibly a beard. The man had a mid-sized grey dog with a red collar in the back seat. He told the girls that his dog was happy and loves children, especially little girls.
The man did not say much else to the girls and left as a parent showed up.
The man’s vehicle was caught on camera passing one of the homes in the area.
The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind parents to teach their children about what they should do if they come into contact with a stranger.
