Re: Attempted Luring Incident
The Ridgewood Police Department is investigating a report of an attempted luring incident
which occurred on Friday October 12, 2012 at approximately 3:30pm. A female student from
George Washington Middle School reported that she was walking home from school on Lincoln
Avenue near McKinley when an older model, small, black, 4 door vehicle slowed down beside
her. She reported that the vehicle was occupied by three black males, with short hair, in their
twenties. She reported that the occupants began making comments about her appearance and
asked her to get into the vehicle. After she refused, the vehicle continued to travel south on
Lincoln Avenue toward Glen Rock. It then reportedly made a U-turn and again approached the
female victim. The occupants made more requests for the victim to get into the vehicle. The
victim ran home without further incident.
Anyone with information about this incident or similar incidents is encouraged to contact the Ridgewood Police Department – 201-652-3900, or Detective Peter Youngberg – 201-251-4537, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
