False Information Shared Through Facebook
On Sunday, March 26, 2017 at approximately 1900 hours Carlisle Police took a report from an individual advising they had been approached by a black Mitsubishi Galant last Saturday, March 18, 2017 while walking. The victim stated the operator of the vehicle attempted to pull them into the vehicle while stating they were going to have sex. Yesterday the victim advised that she had again observed the same vehicle following her in the area of North Pitt Street and West Penn Street and she was able to take a photo of the vehicle and the license plate which she provided to police. After filing a police report, the victim created a Facebook comment explaining her experience and attaching the photo of the vehicle as well as an individual listed on the Megan's Law registry attempting to warn others. The victim believed this to be the male involved.
The Carlisle Police are still actively investigating the incident, but at this time there is no validity to the victim's Facebook post accusing the male listed as being involved. The Carlisle Police do not believe at this time that the male has any involvement or association with the vehicle or person involved.
