The Belton Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying a subject in a vehicle who made a threat toward a 15-year-old male student at a bus stop Tuesday morning.

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

Police would not release the type of threat that was made to the student, but said it did not involve a weapon.

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

Police are looking for the driver of the vehicle who is described as a white male, approximately 30-40 years old, muscular build, and has a blonde-colored beard.

The man was in a silver, older model four-door Honda with rust near the rear right passenger tire.

No license plate information is available.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the suspect should contact Belton police department at 816-331-1500.
