A 14-year-old told Morristown Police she was followed Tuesday afternoon by a Jeep Cherokee while walking home on Speedwell Avenue.
According to a press release issued by Capt. Steven Sarinelli Thursday morning, the report filed Wednesday afternoon claims a black Jeep drove slowly behind the teen as she walked home at about 5 p.m. on Oct. 23.
The teen then noticed two Hispanic males crossing Speedwell Avenue and one of them yelled "get her," according to the press release. She then began to run toward a family member’s home near Fredrick Street.
The teen was not certain if the Jeep and men that allegedly shouted "get her" were associated. She described the men as two older Hispanic males with dark hair, wearing jeans, light-colored, hooded sweatshirts.
"There are no clear links established between the black Jeep and the men that made the comment to her," Sarinelli said in the press release.
This alleged incident comes just a week after another teen reported being followed by a light-skinned Hispanic male in a dark-colored pickup truck from Morristown High School to the area near Burnham Park. That investigation is still ongoing.
Anyone with information or who witnessed anything suspicious is asked to contact Det. Chris Oakley of the Morristown Police Department at 973-292-6645. Information also can be provided anonymously through Morris County Crime Stoppers at 973-COP-CALL.
