HOUSTON -- Houston police and Spring Branch ISD police are investigating two separate stranger danger incidents that occurred on Tuesday.

District officials say the first incident took place near or at the corner of Brittmoore and Kimberley around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. A Rummel Creek Elementary student was walking home from school when she was approached by a man.

Officials say the man asked if the girl wanted a ride, and she ran back to the school to tell authorities.

According to the Spring Branch ISD, the man is described as having darker skin and was driving a blue-green, older pickup truck.

The second incident occurred at Broken Bough and Faust, in the Town and Country area.
