Suspicious Incident Involving 2 School Children

On Thursday March 12, 2015 at 3:30 PM, the Clarkstown Police Department responded to a suspicious incident at Birchwood Ave and Rt.9W in Upper Nyack. Two 12 year old females were walking home from Nyack Middle School when a man in a red pick-up truck pulled up to them and stated “hello ladies, isn’t it a beautiful day”. The girls did not engage the male in conversation and they ran home without any further contact with the male. The male was described as a white male, approximately 50-60 years old, gray hair, facial stubble wearing a plaid shirt and sunglasses. An extensive canvass of the area was conducted. This was the only incident that was reported to the department. We ask the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity. Based on the description of the male involved in this incident, it does not appear to be related to the incident that occurred 2 days ago in Nyack. The Clarkstown Police Department is asking for anyone who would have been in the area and has information to please contact the Clarkstown Detective Bureau at 845-639-5840.
