Patterson Police Chief Garret Grogan has confirmed his department is searching for a man who was seen driving in a suspicious manner through two Patterson area subdivisions on Wednesday.
Two Facebook posts, which combined, were shared almost 2,000 times, warned residents to be on the lookout for the man. While the post alleged that the man attempted to abduct a 12 year old boy, Grogan said that has not been confirmed but said the man reportedly did stare the child down.
He was not able to give a description of the man but said he was driving a dark color Ford F-150 truck. Grogan said the man was spotted on Mike Drive and again on Foxglove Drive, which is just outside of the the Patterson City limits.
If anyone has any information on this situation is asked to dial 911 or contact Patterson Police Department at 985-395-6161.
