On Wednesday, July 31, at approximately 1:30 p.m. officers of the Delta Police Department took a report of a suspicious incident which occurred at the bottom of 4th Street hill involving a teenage male and an unknown adult male.
Delta Police officers took a report concerning a 17-year-old male reporting he had possibly evaded being kidnapped by an unknown adult male.
The teen alleged he was sitting on the curb at the bottom of the hill with his skateboard and a backpack when a man approached him and repeatedly asked if he was okay and if he was a runaway. The teen was able to step away and leave the situation without further incident. He described the man as an adult, bald, wearing dark glasses with dark lenses, a pink button down shirt, dark pants, a dark belt and black shoes. He further stated the unknown male was wearing a "badge" on his belt and was driving a multi-colored GMC pickup truck.
The teen was not harmed but was very concerned for his safety. The Delta Police Department would like to identify the unknown adult male party and speak with him about the incident. Anyone with information as to the identity or whereabouts of the unknown male is asked to contact the Delta Police Department at 874-7676, or Delta County Dispatch at 874-2015.blog comments powered by Disqus
