A 12-year-old girl was approached by two men in a pickup truck while she was walking her dog in Bridgewater Thursday afternoon, police said. The men pulled up next to the girl near the corner of Summer and Covington streets, police said, and drove at a slow pace alongside her while repeatedly asking if she wanted a ride home. Authorities said the girl ran home and her mother contacted police. The truck drove away when the girl ran, police said. According to the authorities, the suspects were both overweight white males about 50 years old with gray hair, in a rusty green pickup truck.
