Community Alert


posted at 7:30 am, 5/29.  

I wanted to alert the community about an incident that happened on our street (Dogwood Drive) yesterday evening. My husband saw a man in a white windowless cargo van on the other side of the street who had his phone held up horizontally toward our 5-year-old daughter and a friend playing in the kiddie pool. My husband bolted up, and once the man saw my husband he put his phone to his ear, then pulled away. The man was white, with a bald/shaved head.
