Milford police say that one recent report of a “suspicious encounter” involving a child was unfounded

But other incidents remain under investigation
MILFORD — Local police clarified Thursday night that a previous report of a “suspicious encounter” was a misinterpretation.
Thursday afternoon the Police Department received a complaint about the encounter, in which a 10-year-old child reported that after exiting the school bus, a man who was near his car in the area of Burnt Plains Road and Cheryl Ann Drive made a comment about a student getting into his vehicle. According to police, the child ran from the area and notified a parent, who contacted the police.
During the investigation, detectives discovered that the man was an adult acquainted with another student on the bus, who missed getting off the bus at the previous stop, and he followed the bus to the next stop.
Milford police said they encourage the continued reporting of any and all suspicious activity to the police. Investigations are still underway for the previously reported incidents.
Anyone with information regarding these encounters is asked to contact the Milford Police Detective Division at (203) 877-1465.
