HALE – Michigan State Police (MSP) Troopers, at 3:50 p.m. on Sept. 13, were dispatched to Hale High School for a complaint of a suspicious male.

It was reported that a man approached two females who were in the parking lot of nearby Mikey’s Pizzeria, located on North Washington Street.

“The male made comments about their looks and began to exit his car,” stated MSP Sgt. Richard Dettling.

He advised that the females then fled from the area, noticed a teacher nearby, and ran to the teacher.

The girls were escorted back to the high school, where family was contacted.

According to Dettling, the suspect was observed continuing to drive on the roads near the school.

The girls were not harmed, and they were turned over to family.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 40s, wearing glasses, and driving a late 90s to early 2000s model red Ford F-250 extended cab pickup.

The MSP notes that surveillance videos from surrounding business are being looked at, and investigation is ongoing to identify the male.

Anyone with information about the incident may contact the MSP West Branch Post at 989-345-0956.
