As a result of the previously-released press release requesting information about a subject who had approached two juveniles on Aug. 11, 2012, the officers were able to identify the subject.
"It has been determined that the subject was not attempting to abduct the juveniles; rather, it was a misunderstood gesture of goodwill," the Police Department said in a Tuesday afternoon press release.
The subject contacted the Police Department and explained the circumstances, and officers were able to confirm the subject’s account of the incident.
The followed a report of a suspicious incident in the 300 block of Campbell Street. According to reports, two brothers, ages 8 and 10, were approached by a woman exiting a business in that area who invited the boys to see a dog in the back of her SUV. The boys declined and told their parents, who then contacted police.
