MARION COUNTY, Fla. – A suspicious incident at a school bus stop has prompted the Marion County Sheriff’s Office to step up patrols at those drop-off locations.
The incident happened Tuesday near the intersection of Southwest 136th Court and Southwest 114th Place in Dunnellon.
Investigators said a 12-year-old got off the bus and two men in a white work van called out to the girl, trying to have her approach the van.
Deputies said the girl immediately got back on the bus and told the bus driver what happened. The area was searched, but the van and the men were not found.
