Novato Police Searching For Man Who Approached Two Children On Sunday

Novato police are on the lookout for a man who reportedly approached two children Sunday and told them their mother wanted him to bring them home. The man is described as being thin and in his 50s, with a white beard, white curly hair, and wearing sunglasses and a gray shirt. The children say he never got out of his car and they fled to a neighbor’s house in the area of Sutro Avenue for help. The suspect was last seen driving away in a white or gray older model sedan and a search of the neighborhood ended with negative results. Now police are asking neighbors in the area to look through any surveillance video they may have in an attempt to identify the man.
