TUCSON, Ariz. - Tucson police are investigating a stranger danger incident at a Vail school.

According to a letter sent to parents by Desert Willow Elementary principal Kendra Forgacs, a man followed a student walking to his home in Rita Ranch who claimed to be a teacher.

The man is reported to be white, 25 years old, 6 feet tall with a thin build, light skin and light colored hair. He has facial hair, dark eyes and is possibly left-handed.

He drove a light, yellow four-door passenger car that resembles a taxi. The vehicle has scratches and rear-end damage, as well as a bike rack or storage rack on the back. There is a "Minecraft" sticker of a brown tree with green leaves on top on the front doors.
