Newport police warn parents of suspicious incident

Posted: Updated:

Newport police have a warning for Kingdom parents after a suspicious incident in the former Vermont Teddy Bear parking lot.

Police say just before 5 p.m., a four-door, maroon sedan approached two children playing in the lot off Farrant Street. The driver, described as a white man in his 40s with brown hair and a beard, allegedly asked the kids about another house on the street.

At this point, police don't believe the man was trying to abduct the children, but they remind parents to keep an eye on their kids when they're playing outside. They also urge parents and kids to call police if they spot a suspicious person or vehicle in their neighborhoods.
