Alert to Residents

On May 26, 2012 at approximately 1:45 p.m. a suspicious vehicle was seen in an alley near 49th Street W. between Penn and Queen Avenues A faded red, older model sedan, possible a Honda Accord or similar pulled up next to an 11 year old female who was taking a walk. The driver of the vehicle, a white male, approximately 25-30 years old, scarring or pockmarks on face, with a brown crew cut, medium build wearing a brown t-shirt asked the girl if she wanted a ride. She said no and walked away.
The area was checked but officers were unable to locate the vehicle or suspect.
The following are some tips for parents when talking to their children regarding strangers:
1. Teach your child(ren) your address and phone number, including the area code. Instruct your child(ren) on how to use the telephone to call home, and in an emergency, 911.
2. Keep an updated file on your child, including a photograph and physical description. If your child is under two years of age, you should update the information at least four times each year.
3. Pay close attention to the clothing your child is wearing each day and never display your child's name on his/or clothes or books. Children will often respond to strangers who call them by name.
