JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Junction City police say they would like to speak to a man who was spotted taking pictures of a young girl from his truck.
Officials say they received a report of a suspicious subject from the child’s father just before 5 PM on Thursday, August 9th, 2012 who told them that a man slowly drove by his 12-year-old daughter and snapped photos of her.
According to police, the girl was walking down the street in the 200 block of North Webster Street when she saw the man pass her taking pictures from inside his vehicle. When she got home, she told her father who called police.
A description of the truck has been released to officers for them to be on the lookout for it. Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown says taking a photo of a pedestrian is not illegal but the JCPD would like to talk to the man to determine his motive and what he intended to do by capturing the girl on camera.
The suspicious person is described as a white man in his 30s-40s with a ponytail and brown hair and facial hair.
According to reports, his vehicle is “sky blue older model pick-up truck with wood panels on the back.”
