Second Stranger Incident in Haddonfield in Ten Days

A possible exposure incident occurred by the creek area of Hopkins Pond. This is the area between Grove and Hopkins Streets. The event happened at approximately 3:45 p.m. on Tues., March 31, and was reported to Haddonfield Police around 5:15 p.m.

Police provided a description of a man in his 40s with straight brown hair, dark trousers and a white t-shirt with some kind of writing.
They pledged to increase police presence during school drop and pick-up times. In addition, the police department will coordinate coverage of the area with the Camden County Park Police.
The park police, said Haddonfield Police, have been fully briefed about the incident.
The exposure incident comes just days after a police reported that a Haddonfield child was approached by a stranger in the Elizabeth Haddon neighborhood.
Around 8:13 a.m. on March 20, a student walking to Elizabeth Haddon School reported to a crossing guard at Kings Highway and Hinchman that an older, balding white male in a small, white four-door car had approached her on Jefferson Ave., pulled the car to the side of the road and told her to get in.
The student walked away from the vehicle and reported the incident to the first adult she encountered, the crossing guard.
Police officers immediately checked the area but were not able to find anyone matching the description given by the child. The student was transported to school by a police officer and the school was contacted.
School officials said they discussed with students the precautions they should take while walking to and from school. Children are encouraged to never talk to strangers, to walk with friends, to not hesitate to seek help when they encounter problems and to not walk alone after dark.
