The Pima County Sheriff's Department is issuing a "stranger danger" alert after an incident that happened on Friday, Oct. 7.

When deputies learned a 12-year-old boy had been sitting on his porch waiting for his parents to come home when a man stopped in front of the boy's house and asked is anyone else was home. According to the release, the boy answered the man's questions at first, but then became suspicious when the suspect said the boy's mother sent him and began to exit his car.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 40s, bald with a goatee. He had a colorful full-sleeve tattoo on his right arm, was last seen wearing a black Washington Nationals baseball hat, light blue polo, jeans with a hole near the right knee and Nike running shoes.
