LCSW on the Lookout for Man Allegedly Attempting to Lure Children with Candy

The Lakewood Civilian Safety Watch this evening is on the lookout for a man who allegedly attempted to lure children into his vehicle in the Westgate community.

Shortly after 8 p.m., a parent phoned the civilian watch group saying his child was offered a lollypop by a driver who motioned to the child to come into his vehicle, a coordinator told TLS.

The driver was described as a black male, driving a black van.

Anyone with information is asked to phone LCSW at 732-367-1212. [TLS-24 A/B]

    I don’t understand why the Lakewood police weren’t called. Call them first and then if you want more help call LCSW.

  • ummmmm???? says:

    I wonder how many of these stories are true? Seems these things only happen in westgate

  • rochel leffler says:

    he’s been seen before in westgate—also i think a green van—we must be very watchful of our children—we cant expect the police to every where when we need them and then blame them for incidents that happen.—its the responsibility the parents to keep watch over their children,

  • crazy says:

    Even more important, did the lollypop have a good hechsher?

  • people says:
