FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WWJ) -- Police are investigating a delayed report of a "stranger danger" incident in Farmington Hills earlier this week.

Police say just before 3 p.m. Monday near Park Hill and Orchard Lake Road two children reported that they were walking home together from the bus stop when a man driving a vehicle stopped, got out and began taking pictures of them with his phone. The children ran home and the subject then drove away, according to police. He did not follow them or make contact.

The incident, which happened in a subdivision located between 12 Mile and 13 Mile Roads, was not reported until several days later.

Police say the driver of the what is believed to be a white, newer model SUV -- possibly a Ford -- is described as a white male in his 40s with brown hair and a beard. He was described as having a large scar on the side of his face near his right eye and wearing a black long sleeve t-shirt.

Detectives are actively investigating the incident and Farmington Hills officers are conducting increased patrols in the area. Police say no other incidents have been reported in the area.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Farmington Hills Police Department at 248-871-2610.
