IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT MEME IF IT WERE NOT SO CREEPY: Suspicious male in a white van showed knife to juveniles

The suspicious male was described as having a bald head, tan skin, and may have been wearing a tie-dye bandanna with smiley faces on it, according to police. He was described as wearing a grey t-shirt.

The male may have a grey-haired mustache, but some witnesses told police he did not have a mustache.

According to police, the male allegedly showed a knife to the juveniles. He said nothing to the witnesses and drove away as one juvenile was trying to alert a nearby adult, who did not see the encounter, police say.


Be Well Folks.
