    Kevin puts the camera and the equipment in the trunk

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Kevin puts the camera and the equipment in the trunk of his car and prepares to leave. An old man approaches to him."

    Thanks,

    No. You can't approach 'to' someone. You could use 'toward', but it's redundant.

    An old man approaches him.

    That's fine.

    See correction.

    Mind you, I don't see a link between the two sentences.
    Consider saying, e.g.,

    Kevin puts the camera and the equipment in the trunk of his car and prepares to leave as an old man approaches him.
    or
    Kevin puts the camera and the equipment in the trunk of his car and prepares to leave. Shortly afterwards, an old man approaches him.
    or
    Just before Kevin puts the camera and the equipment in the trunk of his car and prepares to leave, an old man approaches him.
