Possible Child Luring in Mullica Township Sunday Evening
Police in Mullica Township are investigating a possible child luring attempt that happened Sunday.
Police say that at about 6:30PM, a 17-year-old male was running on Weekstown Road, near the transfer station, when he was approached by a man in the car.
Police describe the man as "heavy-set" with medium length dark hair. He was driving a navy blue SUV.
Mullica Township Police say the man approached the teenager and requested the boy to "come grab this" - referring to a paper he held out the driver's window.
Police say the boy ignored the man and continued to run.
The man then drove ahead and ultimately turned the vehicle around. The teen says he watched the vehicle to continue to travel east on Weeketown Road, towards Weekstown, and out of site.
Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 609-561-7600 x155.
This is the second possible attempted luring attempt reported by police in the last couple of weeks. Hammonton Police reported an incident back in the middle of April in Hammonton. That incident also involved a blue SUV.
