Police are asking the public to report any encounters the public has with a suspicious van in the Janesville area.

Around noon on Sunday a 13-year-old girl was walking behind the Ace Hardware Store at 2720 E. Milwaukee St. when a man stopped his vehicle and asked the teen if she wanted to get in his van, police said.
