Ripon Police are investigating a suspicious incident involving a 12-year-old girl walking to summer school around 7:30 this morning.

She was walking along Eureka Street between Oshkosh and Lane streets when she was approached by a subject driving a newer Black Toyota Prius with Indiana license plates who asked her if she wanted a ride.

The student said no and started to walk back to her residence and it was reported that the vehicle followed her to her home.

The driver of the Prius is described as a male Hispanic, mid 20s to mid 30s in age, with facial hair and wearing a gray shirt. The Black Prius had silver rims and tinted windows.

Please notify the Ripon Police Department at 748-2888 if you have any information or know of the whereabouts of this vehicle.
