Towsend Police Seek Driver Who Approached Teen
TOWNSEND -- Police are asking for the public’s help in locating an SUV whose driver approached a teenager near Ash Street and Chestnut Drive on Wednesday.
According to a police press release, the vehicle was a Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban, possibly tan or beige, heavily rusted. The person who reported the incident said there was a hula bobblehead doll on the dashboard, police said.
The SUV had no front license plate, and the rear plate was hidden by a tinted cover; the plate number and state in which the car was registered could not be seen, police said.
The driver was described as a white male, potentially with a freckle on his left side, wearing dark sunglasses, and a ball cap on backward.
According to police, the driver approached a teenager and asked the teen to “look in his van.” A couple walking on Redwood Drive saw the incident, and walked toward the SUV, police said. The couple told the driver to leave, police said.
Police said they have issued a bulletin to other local departments. If you were in the area at the time, or have other information, police ask that you contact them directly at 978-597-2242.
