Buffalo Police say a second incident of a man approached a young child has occurred in the Black Rock area.

MORE | These incidents occurred during the same time period a 10-year-old girl was approached on Grand Island

The first incident occurred last week, when police say the school-aged victim was approached by a heavyset white man who was wearing a diamond stud earring, a black jacket and acid-wash jeans while waiting at a bus stop at Tonawanda and Farmer.

Police say they were made aware of a second incident on Wednesday that happened on Monday at East Street and Amherst Street, which is only around a half-mile away from the first incident.

In the second incident, police say a man approached a school-aged child at a bus stop there. No further details were released.

Police remind parents to talk to their children about the possible danger that strangers pose and how to handle those situations. If you have any information, call Buffalo Police.
