Cops seek stranger with candy

An uniden­ti­fied man sus­pi­ciously offered candy to a 10-year-old girl at her Far North­east bus stop on June 9, ac­cord­ing to po­lice, who seek the man for ques­tion­ing.

The young­ster re­fused to take the candy, so the man threw it at the girl and told her to share it with her friends, po­lice said. The epis­ode oc­curred on the 3800 block of Ron­nald Drive in Chalf­ont at about 3:15 p.m. Po­lice did not de­scribe how the en­counter ended and who re­por­ted it to au­thor­it­ies.

The man was de­scribed as white, in his mid-20s, thin, with a pale com­plex­ion, brown hair, a black shirt and baggy black shorts. Call the Spe­cial Vic­tims Unit at 215-685-3251 to re­port in­form­a­tion about the case or call 911 in an emer­gency. ••
