Suspect: White Male
Date/Time: Wednesday, February 25th 2015 at about 4:00 pm
Location: 100 block of Orchard View Road, which is in the Woodgate Development within Exeter Township
Synopsis:
The Exeter Township Police Department is investigating an attempting child abduction incident that occurred on Wednesday, February 25th 2015 at about 4:00 pm., in the 100 block of Orchard View Road, which is in the Woodgate Development within Exeter Township. 
 
A seven year old female got off of her school bus and was speaking to a friend on the sidewalk. While the seven year old was speaking to her friend she noticed a man seated in a white truck that was parked in the parking lot near her home. The truck was described as one with an open back that items could be carried in. 
 
The seven year old could hear the man speaking on a cell phone due to the driver’s window of the truck being partially down. The man was then observed getting out of his truck and walking towards a cul-de-sac, which was the same direction the seven year old had to walk to get to her residence. 
 
After speaking with her friend the seven year old walked towards her residence. When she approached her residence she then saw the same man she saw in the white truck. He was now standing by the dumpsters across the street from her home. The man said "come here little girl" and the seven year old replied "no, I don't want to." 
 
The seven year old ran to her residence and quickly went inside. A few moments later she heard someone knock at the door. She opened the door a crack and saw the man looking at her. She then slammed the door again. Nothing else was seen or heard. The seven year old was not alone when she entered her home as she was then accompanied by an adult. 
 
The man was described as being white, skinny and in his late 20's. He wore a black jacket and brown pants.
