Man Follows Girls in Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

A white van follows young girls in the Tri-Cities, having police worried about what the driver's motives are.

The man may also have ties to similar incidents in Hermiston that happened in Cctober. Thursday, a green pick-up approached two young females on the 7200 block of West 4th Avenue near the intersection of 4th and Columbia Center Drive.

On Christmas Eve, one 14-year-old and one 11-year-old girl were walking to Yokes on 27th Avenue. A man with a similar description honked his horn and followed the girls as they walked toward the store but didn't talk to them. Police say they just want people to be aware of the danger.

Police say that the man in both Kennewick incidents is a white male with white hair and a white beard, said to be in his 40s. He has been seen driving a white-paneled van with black-tinted windows.

Police say the man hasn't committed any crimes. They just want to talk to him.
