The Pima County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's assistance in identifying a man after a "Stranger Danger" incident on Friday afternoon, according to a news release. 

Deputies say at 3 p.m. they responded to the 2200 block of West Dakota Street for a report of a suspicious activity. 

As they arrived, they learned a 12-year-old boy was sitting on his front porch waiting for his parents to get home when a man stopped his vehicle in front of the boy's home.

The suspect asked the boy if anyone else was there. 

Deputies say at first the boy answered the suspect's questions but then became suspicious when the suspect said the boy's mother sent him and began to exit the vehicle. 

The boy ran from the area and got help. The suspect then fled westbound on Dakota Street. 

Detectives responded to the scene to continue the investigation. The boy provided detectives with a detailed description of the suspect. 

The suspect is described as being a Caucasian man, approximately 40-years-old, bald with a goatee. The suspect is described as having a colorful full sleeve tattoo on his right arm. 

He was last seen wearing a black Washington Nationals baseball hat, a light blue polo, jeans with a hole near the right knee and Nike running shoes.

The suspect's vehicle is described as a dark green older model four-door sedan with peeling paint on the roof. The vehicle is missing a hubcap on the rear driver's side wheel, and tint that is worn and bubbling.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call 9-1-1, you can also submit an anonymous tip with the potential for reward by text, email, or phone to 88-CRIME.
