Authorities in Bethel, CT are urging caution after a 12-year-old middle school student said she was chased by a strange man while walking from a bus stop Tuesday afternoon.    

Bethel Public Schools says the seventh grader left the bus about 4:15 p.m. to walk home on Route 58 when she saw the man in a white commercial van stop and turn around.  

The girl says the man began running toward her but she was close to her house and was able to get inside and lock the doors.   The man drove away.  

The suspect is described as a clean-cut white man in his 30s, about 5’10” tall.   Police believe it was an isolated incident but school officials are asking students be cautious and report anything suspicious.
