CCSO Seeks Information in Suspicious Activity Investigation
As part of its investigation of a report that a man approached two young girls in a suspicious manner in Cobb Island on July 12, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office has released a composite sketch and is asking for the public’s help in identifying the man.
Officers responded to Cobb Island Road near High Avenue at 4:30 p.m. July 12. Two 11-year-old girls reported they had been riding their bikes near the Cobb Island Baptist Church earlier in the afternoon when a white van approached them. The driver of the van slowed down, asked the girls if they would help him find his dog and offered to put their bicycles in the back of the van. The girls said “no,” rode their bicycles home and told a parent. The girls’ parents checked with neighbors to see if anyone knew the man and, after no one could verify his identity, reported the incident to the Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office issued information about the incident and a description of the man. The man had been described as white and older and had gray hair that fell over his eyes and a gray moustache that curled up on the ends. He had been wearing a green T-shirt with black lettering and his van was white with no windows or markings. Later, the CCSO’s Forensic Artist completed a sketch, which the CCSO is distributing to media sources and posting on its website, Facebook page and Twitter feed in an effort to identify the man.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 301- 932-2222
