The man who gave him the scarf had a terrible look in his eye and a terrible smile to match. Frantic, the father jumped back into his car and sped home, where he found the police already waiting for him. Read these spooky urban legends from all 50 states.

But when she went into the back room to get her keys to go home, she saw the flash of a young boy in the mirror next to her. When she looked back, her keys had been placed on the floor.
