On July 18, 2021, the Douglass Township Police Department took a report of a possible attempted child luring. On this date around 1730 hours two juvenile females were walking in the area of the Schuylkill River trail and Old Philadelphia Pike. A male driving a white van approached the juveniles. He attempted to speak to them. Being afraid the females ran to a house on Old Philadelphia Pike where the homeowner waited with them until the parents arrived. During this time, the homeowner watched the male drive slowly through the area and described the action as appearing to be looking for the females.
The male is described as a white male between 40 and 50 years old with short black hair, a full black beard, and a baggy shirt. The van is described as a pieced together (not factory standard) white van with tinted front window, a stripe down the side, homemade roof rack, and what appeared to be the bumper hanging off it.
If anyone recognizes the male or vehicle, please contact the Department.
