BARRINGTON, R.I (WLNE) – The Barrington Police Department informed the school district that they are seeking information regarding a suspicious person who approached a student on Kent Street.

According to the school district, police are seeking a white male with blond-hair and clean-shaven, believed to be in his 40’s, driving a blue pickup truck, who approached a male student asking him what he was doing.

Police are asking residents to call the department if they see a vehicle matching the description following a bus or parked near a bus stop.

The school district reminds students that interactions with unknown adults who are not teachers, school staff, or safety officials should raise a “red flag” and automatically be deemed suspicious.

All suspicious activity should be reported to the SRO or police immediately.
