Police said they are increasing their patrols in a Franklin neighborhood after a man in a van approached a young boy at a bus stop. Investigators said it happened about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning in the Knollwood Farms subdivision. The 12-year-old boy told police he was walking to the bus stop when a white van sped past and then turned around. The driver yelled at the boy to get in the van. The boy took off, ran home and told his mother what happened.
