Sent from a concerned parent:
Our babysitter was approached Friday afternoon by a strange man claiming to be a FBI agent (he had no ID, and fumbled w/ his wallet when she asked). I am curious if anyone else has or knows someone who has had a similar experience with this man. The things he said to her made it clear he had been following her for some time (while she had my children).
Please be aware, and pass on any information that you may have. This happened on Front St. at about 5:30pm Friday.
He pulled up in an older model gray Honda (or Honda type car).
Caucasian man. Tall, very skinny, with a mustache.
He asked if he could speak with her from his car, then got out of his car and approached her. He knew exactly where she had been and described who he had seen with her…. and then some more bizarre talk. When two men approached, he took off and sped away.
I am not being an alarmist – just think it is so important to spread the word. Again, please share any other information that you may have, or if you have a similar situation call 911 immediately. Unfortunately she did not, so there is not much we can do at this point.
Please notify and encourage your family/caregivers/nannys to call 311 (as long as it’s not an emergency situation) if someone approaches them so our precinct is on alert. The 84th Precinct number is 718-875-6811.
