Parker Police Respond to a Suspicious Occurrence
On October 14, 2012 at approximately 3:30 pm, Parker Police Officers responded to the Clarke Farms Subdivision located in Parker, Colorado on a report of a suspicious vehicle. Upon arrival, the officers spoke to a mother of three who reported she was placing two of her children in her vehicle. While she was loading her children into the vehicle, she heard a vehicle pull up in front of her house and a male voice call out. As she stepped around the corner of her vehicle to determine who was there, she saw what she described as a teal colored Chevy Astro van parked in front of her residence on the roadway. There was a male in the front passenger seat of the van who was “signaling” with his hands for her four-year-old child to come over to the van.
Once the male passenger observed the mother, he ducked out of sight in what the mother described as an attempt to not be seen. The vehicle left the area. All the witnesses described the van as teal in color, clean with a high gloss paint job. It is unknown at this time if other occupants were in the vehicle other than the driver and front seat passenger.
If you believe you have any information concerning this incident, please call Detective Michael Buoniconti with the Parker Police Department at 303.805.6524.
