Mint Hill Police Warn Public About Man in Red Pick-Up Approaching & Attempting to Lure Children to Vehicle

From via

MINT HILL, N.C. — Someone in a suspicious vehicle has been watching and taking photos of children, Mint Hill police said.

On Nov. 19, a woman called police and said a man in a faded red pickup truck tried to persuade her 6-year-old daughter to walk over to his vehicle after she got off her school bus. The girl’s mother told police she witnessed the incident, which happened at the intersection of Minnie Lemmond Lane and Raven Top Drive, and that her daughter ran away in tears.

The woman said the truck was a 1990s model and described the man only as an older white male wearing overalls.

On Nov. 22, police investigated a report that a man in a red truck pulled up next to three young girls who were walking together and tried to take photos of them. Officers searched the Versage neighborhood, off Truelight Church Road, but did not find the man or the truck. The driver in this incident was described as an older white male with rusty gray hair and a clean-cut face.

Police ask that area residents be on the lookout for the truck and call police dispatch at 704-889-2231 or 911 if they spot it.
