MOUNT MORRIS – Police say that a surveillance photo circulated Friday actually does not show the car involved in a suspicious vehicle case outside Mount Morris Central School.
Mount Morris Police Chief Ken Mignemi says that the main witness, a female student at Mount Morris Central, identified the car in the photo as the one which approached her and from which ‘a white male in his fifties with dark gray hair and red cheeks and thick, dark, square-framed glasses’ tried to get her to get in.
“The witness did originally identify the car in the video as the car involved in the incident, but we tracked down that vehicle and found that its owner is female,” said Mignemi. “Once we found this, the witness actually remembered waving hello to that female driver on the day of the incident. So we are still investigating.”
Now, police do not believe that surveillance video shows the incident or the suspicious car, but still believe that the incident occurred. The witness simply describes the suspicious car as an older black sedan with a scratched driver’s side door. The description of the suspicious driver is the same.
Anyone with information about the suspicious car, driver or similar incidents is asked to contact the Mount Morris Police Department at (585)658-2155.
