From the Desk of Chief Ray Schultz,
Community Alert: Repost from earlier VLINC.
Late yesterday afternoon a child
walking in the area of Hedwig Road and Landon Lane was approached by a subject
driving a white construction type van. The male inside of the van is described
as being a white male, approximately 40 years of age, bald with some facial
hair. The van itself was described as a white construction type van with a rear
side tinted window. The male upon approaching the child started a conversation
that made the child feel uncomfortable. The male subject also offered the child
some candy. The child ran to a nearby house for assistance.
Officers checked the area and nearby
ALPR cameras. Due to heavy construction in the area, multiple white vans can be
seen and have been identified. MVPD detectives are following up and are
contacting the owners of the vehicles as well as looking for additional area
MVPD will have an extra strong presence
in the area for the next several days. Anyone with any information about
this incident is asked to contact the MVPD at 713-365-3700.
This week MVPD Officers Boggus and Vasquez spent some
time with Beckett Henderson who won an opportunity to “Cruise with a Cop” from
the Hunters Creek Elementary PTA. Beckett learned about MVPD technology, procedures,
and operations. He then finished up the day by presenting the monthly police
report to the Hunters Creek City Council. See more about Becketts day at the MVPD
