Bedford Police Seeking Suspect After Girl Allegedly Approached by Man in Vehicle
BEDFORD, N.H. — Chief John J. Bryfonski reports that the Bedford Police Department is actively seeking a suspect who allegedly approached a juvenile girl at a Bedford bus stop and attempted to lure her into his car yesterday morning.
On Wednesday, Jan. 18, just before 10 a.m., a juvenile girl was allegedly approached by a man in a dark colored SUV as she waited for the school bus in the area of Hawthorne Drive. The man ordered the girl to get into the car, which she refused. The suspect then left the area in an unknown direction.
The girl and her parents brought this information to the Bedford Police Department this evening.
The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-30’s with an average build and a long, pointed nose. He was last seen wearing a hooded jacket.
Anyone who was in the area of Hawthorne Drive at this time or has additional reports of suspicious activity involving the described vehicle is asked to immediately contact Bedford Police at 603-472-5113.
Bedford Police caution residents to always be aware of their surroundings and immediately report any suspicious activity.
No further information is available at this time. More information will be released as it becomes available.
