WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The investigation into a report of a suspicious man talking to a child at a Waterloo bus stop on Thursday morning has resulted in no charges being filed.

Capt. Tim Pillack with the Waterloo Police Department said a young girl was waiting for the bus in the 500 block of Lakeside Street at around 8:11 a.m. Thursday when an Arabic male with a dark beard got out of a black "Trailblazer"-type SUV with Oklahoma plates and asked the girl what she was doing.

Pillack says that when another vehicle pulled up to the bus stop, the man got back in the SUV and drove away. Pillack says the man never touched or harmed the girl.

Pillack says the same SUV was spotted about an hour later driving through the parking lot at Lowell Elementary School.

The man, who police located early Thursday afternoon, was interviewed. No criminal charges in that incident were filed, according to Pillack.

Pillack said the man was arrested on a warrant out of Dubuque County for assault/domestic abuse.
