A CREEP in a car asked a schoolgirl 'are you sure you want to be walking alone, darling?' in an unsettling incident in Rowley Regis.

The St Michael's High School student reported the incident, which happened between 3.10-3.15pm on Monday (May 13) in Stuart Road, not far from the school.

The school posted a warning on its website here.

At first, the man drove past the student, then turned his car around before opening the window and uttering the creepy line, causing the girl to run away.

The man was described as Asian, mid-50s, with a grey stubbly beard, short grey hair and wearing a dark coloured jumper.

His car was a silver/grey 4x4 with tinted windows.
