Girl Approached by Man in Van, Police Investigating

A 15-year-old girl was approached by a man in a van while she was walking along a West Ward alley early this afternoon, and Easton police report they are investigating the incident.

The man, described as driving an older model green mini-van in poor condition, stopped to speak with the girl at about 12:40 p.m., police said. He then reportedly asked if she wanted to smoke with him.

"It must be noted the male did not attempt to get her into the vehicle," said police inspector Daniel Reagan in a media release about the incident. "However, police are continuing to investigate and want to advise the public about this incident while we continue our investigation."

The driver is described as a black male with a scruffy beard. He was wearing a black hat and a black zip-up sweater.

The man and van were last seen near Raspberry and Spruce streets, headed west.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Det. Matthew Rush at the Easton Police Department at 610-250-6639 or the police tip line at 610-250-6635.
