Hartford Police Issue Alert for Parents and Caregivers

hartford patchThe Hartford Police Department is investigating suspicious incidents that occurred this week. A report came in that a female middle school student was on Hartford Avenue in Wilder when a schoolteacher saw three male subjects allegedly following her. The teacher stopped and talked with the student as a deterrent. It is alleged that the males then walked away and got into what is a grey van with no or unknown plates and left the area. Another citizen reported a possible incident where a male student alleged that he felt he was being followed. Then at Kilowatt Field in Wilder a grey van was reported to police as having a group of male subjects in it and they were allegedly watching juveniles and allegedly held up what appeared to be a weapon.
Hartford Police are advising that if children have to walk without an adult, it is best to walk as a group. Children and parents should communicate as to what routes the children are taking and during what periods. Police urge everyone to be diligent and report anything that appears suspicious.
