Suspicious situation near Village of Cannonsburg

A suspicious subject attempted contact with two 14-year-old females on Monday, May 7, between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. near the Village of Cannonsburg.

The contacts occurred at separate locations after the girls went their separate ways and while they were walking near Townsend Park; one girl on 6 Mile Road and the other on Ramsdell Avenue.

The suspect is described as a white male, mid 50s, dark-colored hair with gray roots, unshaven for approximately a week, no glasses. One girl believed he may have a slight southern accent. Unknown clothing. One girl believed he had brown eyes and a crooked tooth on the side.

The vehicle is described as a dirt-white or silver van. One girl believed it was a van style; both thought it was larger than a car. One girl said that it had narrow, longer back-up lights below the brake lights.

Anyone with any additional information is asked to call the Kent County Sheriff’s Department at (616) 336-3113 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.
