Rye PD Commish Corcoran commented on the perv alert Tuesday, and asked citizens with any information for call the police directly or via the tip line.
Comments and the tip line info follows below.
Police Commissioner Michael C. Corcoran, Jr. commended the victims for their quick thinking and keen observations in providing police with a very detailed description of the suspect and his vehicle. “These young ladies did exactly what a young person should do, observe, run away and immediately contact police. In today’s day and age, there is no reason that an adult should be asking a child for directions, wanting to show or offer them a puppy, give them candy, offer them money, offer them a ride or anything else on a public street. These are always red flags, cause for concern and warrant immediate notification to police said Corcoran.”
Anyone with information is asked to immediately contact Rye Police at 914-967-1234 and request to speak with the Detective Division. Tips can also be provided anonymously to the Rye Police Tip Line at 914-760-4243 or online at http://www.ryeny.gov/police.cfm.
