KEARNEY — A man has come forward as the “suspicious subject” near Harmon Park Monday morning, and says he only wanted to see if the girl needed help.
Around 8:30 a.m. Monday, officers received a report of a suspicious male subject driving a black car in the area of Harmon Park. A 14-year-old girl reported that as she was walking, a male subject in a black four-door car with tinted windows stopped to ask if she was OK and if she wanted a ride.
He also asked the girl if she needed any money. KPD said the girl reported to officers that the male drove away as two women walked by. Although, the women were never located so they could be interviewed.
