Newington Police On Lookout For Suspicious Person
Around 1:30 p.m. Friday, the Newington Police Department took a complaint from a girl of a suspicious person. According to the girl, she was walking on Willard Avenue by Garfield Street when a newer style black Chevrolet four-door sporty vehicle stopped on the street by her.
The operator of the vehicle was described by the juvenile as a Hispanic male in his mid 40s, between 5-feet-8 and 5-feet-10, skinny build, short curly black hair, tanned colored skin, wearing a dark t-shirt and kaki long shorts. He was also described as not having any facial hair.
The operator of the vehicle was the lone occupant and told the girl to get into the car, but she refused. The man then asked her a few questions and began to get out of the vehicle and approach her. The girl threatened to call the police and the man fled north on Willard Avenue.
The area was checked by Officers and they were unable to locate the suspect vehicle described above. The case continues to be under investigation. If anyone has any information in regards to this incident, contact Master Police Officer James G. Johnson at (860) 666-8445.
