Reports in New Waverly, northern Walker County
by Walker County Sheriff’s Office staff
Friday morning, October 20, 2017 at 7:32am, Walker County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a suspicious person call in the North/East part of New Waverly, TX.
Complainant advised that a brown/tan in color passenger vehicle approached her 12 year old daughter at the front of her property where she was waiting on the school bus. The driver pulled the vehicle next to the child and directed her to enter the vehicle that he would “take care of her.” The subject then exited the vehicle and when he began to approach the child, the child began to scream and ran towards her residence. The subject then got back into the vehicle and sped off North of FM 1375.
The suspect was described as a black male, last seen wearing a white shirt and dark in color pants or jeans.
On October 20, 2017 at approximately 11:00 am a second complaint was called into the Sheriff’s Office of a black male in a dark gray or silver 4 door passenger car that was going up and down a street in a subdivision in Northern Walker County. 3 young children were playing outside of their residence; the subject stopped in the street and motioned for the children to come towards his vehicle. An adult at the location attempted to approach the vehicle and the vehicle sped off.
The Criminal Investigations Division is currently working on gathering more information in attempting to locate the described subjects. It is unknown at this time if the two events are related.
