Police report suspicious incident

At three o’clock yesterday, a truck driver stopped a 13-year-old male on Hudson Street and asked him to get something out of the glove compartment. The man said his hand was too big to reach inside.

Being suspicious, the teenager said “no” and ran home. A while later, he noticed the same pick-up truck pass his house in Cornwall-on-Hudson and head east on Hudson Street.

When the teen’s mother came home, he told her what happened and she called the police.

The vehicle is a light blue pick-up truck. The driver is about five foot nine with a crew cut and a short brown beard.

If you are aware of a similar incident or have relevant information, please contact the Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department at 534-4200 ext. 321 or 534-8100.
