ASHEVILLE, N.C. - Buncombe County Sheriff's investigators are looking into several reports of suspicious activity directed towards young girls.

Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Natalie Bailey said that the first incident happened on March 12 at 3 p.m. in the Emma community and a second incident happened on Friday. According to Bailey, several girls told deputies that two white men approached them as they were walking and insisted that they get into their car. In each case the girls ignored the men and ran off.

Sheriff's investigators are asking for the public to be on the lookout for a white, mid-sized, four-door car driven by a white man who is balding, wears glasses and a button up white shirt. The passenger in the vehicle has a long beard and was wearing a t-shirt.

They are asking that anyone who sees a suspicious vehicle at a bus stop that matches the suspects' vehicle to contact 911. Investigators are asking anyone who has information about either incident to contact the sheriff's office at (828) 255-5050.
