I received an e-mail yesterday afternoon about a disturbing incident reported to police by a local resident on Amherst.
A neighbor mine at 3800/3900 block of Amherst yesterday reported a man to police whom she caught videotaping her children playing outside; then he returned later and presented her with an edited video that contained some “disturbing” images. i do not know more details of what was indicated. his description is: “about 60 – 65, almost 6 feet tall, very slim, white hair, sometimes wears a baseball cap. He was in jogging clothes as if he was walking the neighborhood for a jog.” the police reminded her to always watch your children even if they are playing in your front yard and lock your gates to the backyards if your children play unattended in the back.
So I checked in with Chief Gary Adams of the University Park Police Department. Here is his brief but rapid response.
This is being investigated at this time.
