 At approximately 8:21 pm on March 4, 2014 police were called to the Church Street/ Lattimer Street area of the city to investigate a report of a suspicious male who had been following a woman walking home. The incident occurred at approximately 8:05 pm as the woman was walking north on Front Street. The male drove up to her and called out to her but she ignored him and entered a Front Street business. A few minutes later she exited and began walking southbound when the same male drove up behind her and again began calling out to her. Once again she ignored him and used her cell phone to call her boyfriend to come and pick her up. Once he arrived the suspect left the area driving northbound on Church Street near Lattimer Drive.
