Ferguson police say man in van approached teen

Police are looking for information on a man in a van.

According to Ferguson Township police, a “young teen” was riding a skateboard near Blue Course Drive and Broadmoor Lane at about 8:20 p.m. Sunday. They say a man driving a van stopped in the street and called to the teen, asking about the skateboard. The teen did not know the driver and did not move toward the van, but continued home.

Police say the van’s headlights were not illuminated and the driver left the area, traveling toward Whitehall Road.

The van was described as being silver and similar in style to a Dodge Caravan, with rust on the driver’s door.

Police said the driver was wearing large, box-style glasses. Anyone with information about the incident or the vehicle is asked to call police at 237-1172.
