    As we previously reported, on Sept. 28 an 8-year-old girl was returning home from Cardinal John Foley School in Haverford Township when she was allegedly approached by a prowler at Overbrook Terrace and West Hathaway Lane. 

    The man asked the girl if she needed a ride. 

    The brave girl declined and rushed to a neighbor’s home, who alerted authorities immediately. 

    The second most recent incident unfolded in Haverford Township on Sept. 16 when a 14-year-old boy was allegedly approached by a man in a black sedan. 

    The perverted man instructed the boy to “hop in,” according to reports. The boy’s father was nearby and, when he approached, the man fled the scene.

    On Aug. 25, three young boys under the age of 11 were followed by a man driving a dark van after leaving Saint Bernadette’s School in Upper Darby.

    Anyone with information regarding these incidents or others is urged to contact police.
