The unnamed witness who reported the incident stated that she was making a left turn from Edwards Drive onto Township Line Road when she noticed a smaller white pickup truck with Florida plates stopped in the middle of the road by Kiddie Academy. The driver was talking to two young girls in dresses, approximately 16 years old, that were standing across the street. The driver was asking them to get into his vehicle.
The witness stated that when the girls stepped off the curb, the witness asked them if they knew the driver. When the girls said they didn’t, the witness told them not to get in the truck.
The witness said the truck drove off. The witness spoke with the girls who were visibly uncomfortable. The witness gave the girls a ride to the Acme on Center Square Road where their father picked them up.
The report states that the girls mentioned that the male had an accent but gave no other description. The police report states that the vehicle was a 2019 white Toyota with Florida plates.
Police reported a similar call on June 26 about a white Toyota pickup truck with Florida plates following two juvenile females on Merle Lane. According to the police report, the truck was found in the Westbrook Apartments in Swedesboro, but the driver was not identified.
