Belton police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying someone in a vehicle who made a threat toward a 15-year-old boy at a bus stop Tuesday morning.

The incident occurred at 6:30 a.m. in the area of South Scott Avenue and Cambridge Road as the boy was waiting for a bus to the Belton Freshman Center.

Police would not disclose the nature of the threat, but said it did not involve a weapon.

Belton Police Sgt. Brad Swanson said the victim’s brother showed up shortly after the incident and the two rode the bus to school together. “Once they got to school, the child reported it,” Swanson said.

Police are looking for the vehicle’s driver, described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, with a muscular build and a blond beard. The man was in a silver, older model four-door Honda with rust near the rear right passenger tire.

Anyone with information should call 816-331-1500.
