Police Investigate Attempted Luring in Linden


Authorities have released a surveillance photo of a vehicle who police say was involved in an attempted luring early this morning.

Officers responded to Linden High School today where they spoke with a 16-year-old student who stated that at approximately 7 a.m. a thin white male with short brown hair wearing a grey shirt and sunglasses driving a blue 2-door vehicle pulled next to her and offered her a ride to school.

The vehicle then fled the area traveling east on W. St. George Ave.

The juvenile, who was unharmed, continued on her way to school where she reported the incident.

The incident is considered suspicious, and Linden Juvenile Detectives are investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Phil Marcus at (908) 474-8520.
