Bibb County deputies need help identifying a man who approached an 8-year-old boy at First Presbyterian Day School on Saturday and offered him money to help move a mattress.
The older white man, who was described as about 5-feet-9 inches tall and about 200 pounds, approached the boy at about 3 p.m. He was driving a silver four-door station wagon or small sport utility vehicle, according to a sheriff’s office news release.
The boy, weighing about 60 pounds, realized he was too small to help move the mattress and told the man he knew the offer was a trick. The man left, and the boy reported the incident to his mother, according to the release.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigator Paul Osgood at 746-9441 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
