The child told the responding police officer that she was playing in the front yard on Saturday night May 15 around 6:50 pm when a dark colored SUV stopped in the road near the yard with the man behind the wheel yelling for her to come over to the vehicle.

She then immediately ran inside the house and the vehicle left the area, turning onto Pitney Lane and heading towards East Veteran’s Highway.

The driver is described as an adult male with dark hair and a beard, holding what appeared to be a bottle of beer, police said.

As the police officer searched the area, he learned from other residents that the vehicle was slowly moving through the area and at one point honked his horn at a group of residents who were also in the front yard but of another residence.

Police say a home security video shows the girl playing in the yard and the dark colored SUV stopping in the street in front of the residence.

The juvenile then turned and ran from the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective John Rodriguez at 732-928-1111 or through the department’s StopIt app.
