The Clarkstown PD has investigated a possible luring incident which occurred on Thursday, March 19, 2015 shortly after 5:30 p.m. on White Birch Court in New City.
A young child (less than 10 years of age) was walking home on White Birch Ct, when a passenger in a red pick-up truck reportedly asked the child “you wanna get in?” The child became nervous and ran to a neighbor’s house to tell an adult.
The Clarkstown Police Department aggressively investigates all reported cases of child luring. The red pick-up truck and its occupants have been identified and the reason for being in the area was verified. After a thorough investigation, this incident is deemed to be unfounded, posing no danger to the child or to the community.
The Clarkstown Police Department continues to urge the public to contact us if any similar incidents occur in the future. “If you see something, say something.”
