Sparta Police Department in Kent County issued a warning “suspicious individuals approaching children on the street.”

Police said no children have been harmed or abducted but in a recent complaint, the department said a man in a van asked a little girl if she wanted to go with him to see puppies.

Police are urging parents to teach their children to be aware of their surroundings and to know what to do if approached by a stranger.
