PELHAM — Police are looking for the public’s help in finding the occupants of a dark pickup truck that approached a group of teenage boys on Friday evening and tried to get them into the truck.
Shortly after 8 p.m. on Friday, police officers responded to Longview Circle where a dark pickup truck with a light-colored cab approached a group of teenage boys who were walking in the area. According to police, the truck stopped and a passenger in the right front seat told the boys to get in the truck.
