On September 7th at approximately 4:00pm, Hamden police officers responded to Denicola Park (Treadwell Street) on the report of a suspicious activity complaint.

The caller reported that an unknown male was at the park near the bushes trying to “lure” his young daughter. The unknown male was telling her to “come here” and waving her towards him. A witness stated there was a similar incident that occurred at the same park earlier that morning at 9:30am. The earlier incident was not initially reported to police.

The individual was described as a tall, thin, white male in his 30’s or 40’s with blue eyes, blondish hair and a disheveled appearance. He was operating a white van, similar to a Ford Econoline van, with CT plates, tinted windows and basketball emblems on the front and back of the vehicle.

The Hamden Police Department has increased patrols in the area and is requesting that any similar suspicious incidents be reported to police. Anyone with information related to this investigation is asked to call Hamden Police at 203-230-4000.
