Adults Tried to Lure Children Into Cars, Police Say
Washington Township Police are searching for any information related to two recent luring incidents.
Drivers attempted to lure young girls into cars Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, according to Washington Township Police Chief Randy Ciocco.
People in a "shiny" gray car approched three girls on Ridgewood Road near Westwood Thursday at around 3:30 p.m. A female passenger with dyed hair, estimated to be in her 50s or 60s, asked the girls if they wanted a ride, police said. The girls declined, but three boys walking behind the girls did get in the car, which turned onto Lafayette Avenue, police said.
Police said there have been no reports of missing children, but they did not know what had happened to the boys after they got in the car.
A man in a dented gray or silver car also approached a lone girl on Ridgewood Road near Pascack Road Friday morning, police said. The man asked the girl if he had done her homework, then called her "a nasty girl" when she ignored him. He drove away north on Pascack Road.
Police are asking anyone with information related to either incident to report it. The Washington Township Police can be reached at 201-664-1140 or 911 "if you believe you have the car in sight."
