***Update**** Our department was able to talk with the male subject who conversed with the two juveniles. He contacted our department after he was made aware of our initial posting. After interviewing the male subject, indications are the comments were not meant to entice nor abduct the two juveniles and the context of the conversation was misinterpreted.
On Wednesday, August 24th a report was made to the Derry Township Police Department about an adult male subject speaking to a 9 and 11 year old boy sitting on a porch outside a residence in the Deer Run development with their dog. The male subject along with another male subject appeared to have exited from the Swatara Creek area and walked to their parked vehicles on the nearby street when one male spoke to the children as he stood by his car on the street. The male commented that it was hot outside and the boys can sit in the air conditioned car if they need to cool off. The subjects then entered their cars respectively and drove from the area. The two cars are described as being black and green and the other as being yellow with no other information provided. Currently, no evidence exists to suggest that either of the male subjects attempted to ‘abduct’ or physically approach any child in the area, yet residents should contact DTPD if they see similar matching vehicles in the vicinity so we can identify the occupant and discuss his concerning comment. ###
