Lexington County Sheriff's deputies are investigating another report of a suspicious man trying to approach a child.

The latest incident occurred Thursday afternoon outside a home on Midway Street near South Congaree. A 9-year-old girl told deputies a stranger was parked in her driveway as she was walking home from her bus stop.

She told deputies the man got out of his car and started walking toward her. The girl ran to a neighbor's house and called 911.

She described the man between the ages of 18 and 25, with brown hair, a mustache and goatee. He was wearing a black tee-shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes.

The girl said the man was driving a newer model burgundy sedan.

There have been at least two other reports of a suspicious man approaching children in Lexington county in the past month, but they do not match this description.

If you have any information on any of these people, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
