(Updated at 8 p.m.) A white bus with a blue strip attempted to pick up children at a bus stop in the Southington Lane area of Reston earlier this morning (Thursday).
Local police are investigating the incident, which happened around 7:44 a.m.
The driver reportedly drove off after a community member tried to speak with the driver. The driver, who is described as a white male with facial hair, shut the door and drove off.
A second incident happened about 10 minutes later involving a different bus. An unmarked yellow school bus with black stripes tried to pick up elementary school students at a bus stop in the area of Chynoweth Street and Telegraph Road in Lorton, Fairfax County police said.
That driver also drove away when confronted by a community member. He was described as a man with long curly brown hair who wore a surgical mask and dark clothing.
Police said later that the Lorton driver was identified.
“The bus was there for another pick up and no criminal activity suspected,” the Fairfax County Police Department said.
