Police Investigating Report Of Man Observing Child From Wooded Area


 

Cheshire police are investigating a suspicious person complaint after a local resident observed an unknown man watching his six-year-old son from a wooded area.

According to a statement released by the Cheshire Police Department, the complaint was filed on Oct. 17 at approximately 3 p.m., when officers responded to a home in the Mountain Road at Barkledge Court area. According to the CPD, the complainant stated that he had been doing yard work while his son played in the driveway nearby, when he noticed that a man—described as a white male, approximately 6-feet tall with brownish hair and glasses—had parked a red Subaru, possibly a Forrester model, on an adjacent side street and appeared to be watching his son from a wooded area that was located between the side street and property. 

The complainant approached the suspicious individual, at which point the man reportedly ran back to his vehicle and “sped off.” 

Officers are asking that residents in the surrounding area review any personal surveillance footage for any signs of an individual or vehicle that matches the description provided. Anyone with information on the incident in question is asked to contact Detective DeCapua at (203) 271-5531.
