Local Crime News – Suspicious Man at RF&P Park

Our local crime news article begins with a story from the Richmond Times Dispatch.  Last Saturday, the Richmond Times Dispatch posted that an older white male was being sought for suspicious behavior after allegedly approaching three girls last Thursday.

This occurred at RF&P Park, located 3400 block of Mountain Road. The man was apparently driving a green Ford Ranger and was wearing a red hat and shirt. At approximately 7:30 pm on Thursday, September 4th, a male driving the truck offered to show three young girls a dog, but then drove off when an adult approached.

Then on Sept 6th, the Henrico Citizen by the Citizen Staff Reports gave a follow-up report. It stated that the Henrico Police found there was no wrongdoing with the man who behaved suspiciously toward the young girls.

The police identified the man and conducted numerous interviews with him, as well as other witnesses. After doing so, the Henrico Police are satisfied no crime has occurred. Quoting from the report

“After reviewing all of the facts associated with this case, it has been unfounded,” police said in a statement today.

Henrico Police Wins Challenges

The Henrico Citizen reported in August the Henrico County Police Division’s Special Enforcement Unit had

won first place in its categories at the Law Enforcement Challenge (LEC) in both the statewide and national competitions. The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police (VACP) hold this competition each year to recognize agencies having the best traffic safety programs in the commonwealth and in the nation.

The competition is designed to target three major traffic safety priorities: occupant protection, impaired driving, and speeding. The IACP requires agencies to provide a detailed report, which documents each agency’s efforts and effectiveness for the entire previous year in the following areas: impaired driving, occupant protection, speeding, and state and local traffic safety issues.

Aarrow Bail Bonds sends congratulations to the Henrico Police Department for once an excellent win.
