Concerning Incidents in Carlisle

April 9, 2022

Dear Families:

I write to share information about two incidents in Carlisle on Thursday that involved a suspicious person approaching middle school-aged girls.  The Carlisle Police Department report the events as the following:

The first incident took place Thursday at approximately 3:00 p.m. when a young female was at track practice on Church Street.  She described the vehicle as a dirty red/maroon Honda with an older male, possibly with a beard, approximately 5’10” tall.  The male was standing outside of the vehicle, a short distance away from her, and asked for a place to get coffee.  The girl responded and the male party asked for help putting it in his GPS.  She declined and the suspect left in his vehicle.

The second incident took place at approximately 5:00 p.m. at Fern’s Country Store in Carlisle when another young female was approached by a middle aged, tall male, with white/born hair driving a red/maroon four door vehicle.  The male party asked her for help with something in his vehicle, the girl declined, and the male party left the area.

The Concord Police have reported no similar incidents in Concord and remain alert and in ongoing contact with the Carlisle Police.

These events are important reminders to talk regularly with kids about how to respond if approached by a stranger and to never get in cars with anyone.  If you have any information about these two particular incidents, please contact the Carlisle Police Department at (978) 369-1155.
