Police in Bethlehem are issuing a warning to parents after a teenage boy was approached by a stranger.

It happened Tuesday night near Sim's Market in the 600 block of West Broad Street.

Police say the boy was approached by a Hispanic man in a dark colored Subaru who claimed he was sent by the boy's father to pick him up.

The boy ran home and the vehicle followed for a short time and then drove off.

Anyone who might have information about the man or the vehicle is asked to call the police.
