Be on the Look Out for White Male in his 30s or 40s GREEN VAN

Newton Police are investigating what they called a “possible kidnapping,” on Wolcott Street on Saturday in Auburndale.

An 11-year-old girl was walking on Wolcott when a green minivan stopped on the side of the road. The driver exited the car and lifted its tailgate. The male driver grabbed a shiny object from the car and said something to the girl that “alarmed” her. The girl ran home.

The girl described the man as around six feet tall, medium build, salt and pepper hair, a few days of being unshaved, and wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

I am wondering if this is the same person who grabbed the wrist of a woman as she was closing her trunk on Homer Street. The article that I read said a woman was leaving Newton City Hall and, as she drove away, noticed her truck wasn’t closed. She pulled over on Fuller Street to close it and a white Causasian male in his 30s or 40s grabbed her wrist and tried to pull her to the sidewalk. She broke free. He grabbed her wrist again. She screamed at him to leave her alone and was able to drive off.

The suspect is described as a white man, 5-foot-10, in his early 30s, clean shaven, short dark hair, and wore blue jeans and a blue fleece top.

Please be careful and let your kids know to be careful and mindful of Stranger Danger.
