WASHINGTON Twp., N.J., (CBS) — Emails and phone calls went out to families in the Washington Township School District in Gloucester County. Officials informed them police were investigating reports of two attempted lurings this week.
Washington Township Police say these two incidents happened around the same area in Sewell, at around the same time Monday and Tuesday.
Police say it was East Holly Avenue around 7:30 a.m. each morning.
In the latest incident, police say a man in his 30’s approached a girl, and kept asking if she wanted a ride to school. She refused and police say he then asked if she saw his dog before driving away in a car described as red and junky with Jersey plates.
He’s described as white and muscular, having a long flat nose, brown eyes, wearing a blue v-neck shirt.
The day before, police say a man in a white car followed another girl. Authorities say he stared but didn’t say a word before driving away. The suspect is described as white with an olive complexion, and dark brown, slicked back hair. Police ask for the public’s help and say they’ll have extra patrols in the area.
Anyone with information can call Washington Township Police Det. Lisa Frattali at 856-589-0330 or 856-256-1212.
