WE DON’T WANT CANDY, OLD MAN
At 5:07 p.m. Dec. 14, police were called to the Shell gas station, 401 Main St., regarding suspicious activity. The reporting party told police that his 14-year-old daughter and one of her friends were at the gas station about 4 p.m. when an older man tried to buy them candy. The reporting party said the man asked the girls several times if he could buy them candy, and the girls told the man no. The man then told the girls to “get the hell out of the way then.” The man was described as having wrinkled skin, gray hair, a thin build and about 6 feet tall. He may have had stubble on his face. The clerk at the gas station told the reporting party that the man was a customer, but he didn’t know his name.
HIT AND RUN: At 3:26 p.m. Dec. 18, police were called to a traffic hit and run crash involving a 15-year-old pedestrian on a skateboard and a pickup truck at the intersection of 7th Street and Stone Mountain Drive. The reporting party said a young man on a skateboard got into a black Honda CRV, and she was uncertain of his injuries. She told police that the skateboarder was halfway across the intersection when the truck drove over the skateboard and then drove off. She wasn’t sure if the truck hit the skateboarder. Within minutes of speaking to the reporting party, police received a call from the mother of the skateboarder. She said her son was brought home by a concerned parent. The teen on the skateboard told police that the truck hit his right arm and hip area knocking him off the skateboard, which was valued at $600. The driver of the truck was not located.
