Fairhaven Police are warning residents about a suspicious man who demanded a young boy get into his vehicle.

Police say that the boy was walking on Evergreen Street on Friday afternoon around 4 p.m. when a grey pickup truck slowed down beside him and the driver demanded that the boy “get his ass in the truck.”

The child immediately ran to a friend’s house nearby and alerted his parents and police.

The man is described as a heavy set white male between 40 and 60 with grey hair and a goatee.

After the incident the truck is reported to have slowly driven away on Hill Street. Officers searched the surrounding area but were unable to find the man or the truck.

If anyone sees anyone matching the description they are asked to alert the Fairhaven Police at 508.997.7421.
