Student Notices Suspicious Man Near Bus Stop
Raytown, MO – Raytown Police were alerted to a Raytown High School student that noticed a suspicious man near East 63rd Street and Hedges Street, on Thursday afternoon, 10-02-2014 around 2:30 p.m. The student, a 15 year old female, was walking home from the school bus stop when a red pickup truck drove by very slowly. The student felt as if the man driving the truck was watching her, and observed him waving as he passed by. The man was driving a newer model, red, two door pickup truck and was described an older white male, between 40-50 years old, balding, and wearing a grey t- shirt. The man never stopped the truck and left the area at a slow speed. There is no further description of the man or truck, at this time. The investigation of the incident is underway.
Raytown Police encourage parents to talk to their children about strangers and recognizing, and how to handle, potentially dangerous situations. Parents may choose to use the resources of the National Crime Prevention Council’s website, http://www.ncpc.org/topics/violent-crime-and-personal-safety/strangers, to start that conversation.
