Suspicious Incident on Palmer Ave


On June 1, 2015 at approximately 8:40 AM a Mamaroneck High School student was walking to school on Palmer Ave between Maple Ave & Fenimore Rd, when a dark green station wagon driven by a Hispanic male in his mid-40’s with short dark hair & dark eyes approached her and asked her “Where are going?”. The student just pointed straight ahead and kept on walking. The unknown male then asked her several times to get into the car and that he would drive her. The student said no each time and walked to a bus stop. The male asked one more time if she wanted a ride and after she said no, he finally drove away. This is for information purposes only. There are no charges pending at this time as no crime has occurred.
