Township Police Warn Of ‘Suspicious Man’ On North End

Lower Pottsgrove Police believe the same individual is involved in two reported incidents

Lower Pottsgrove Police Warn Of  'Suspicious Man' On North EndSANATOGA PA – Residents in the northern end of Lower Pottsgrove Township, and particularly in the areas of Bliem and Belaire roads and Villa Drive, were warned Friday (Nov. 9, 2012) by the police chief about a “suspicious male” who has been seen loitering around homes there.

Chief Michael Foltz said his department has received and investigated two separate reports, in the late evening and early morning hours of Thursday (Nov. 8) and Friday of a man waiting around single family homes. He cautioned residents “to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity.”

“Police cannot be certain what the intentions or motives are of this unknown male subject,” Foltz added. He said police patrols and enforcement activities in the areas are being increased.

Thursday’s report occurred at about 7:45 p.m., when a woman living in the 1100 block of Bleim Road said she saw a suspicious man in her rear yard. He was startled when she pulled her car into the driveway, according to Foltz, and ran off toward Bliem Road.

In the second incident, on Friday at about 12:15 a.m., a woman living in the 800 block of Belaire Road near Villa Drive was leaving her home to walk her dogs when she saw a male subject in the bushes alongside her home and heard him make what Foltz called “a sexually suggestive remark.” She “quickly retreated” back into her house and called police, Foltz said.

Police combed the areas involved during both incidents and were unable to locate the man identified in either. Their descriptions of the subject are limited, but Foltz said the department believes “these two incidents may be related to the same subject.”

Anyone who have information on these incidents is being asked to call Lower Pottgrove Township Police at 610-326-1508.
