Pulaski residents report suspicious event

NEW CASTLE — Pulaski police are advising residents to be alert after a man tried to call a youth to his car.

Sgt. Chad Adams said some residents had seen the incident, which occurred around 4 p.m. on Marr Road near Greenhouse Road Thursday afternoon. They considered it suspicious and reported it to the police.

They said a man — thought to be in his late 40s or early 50s and driving a silver mini-van — called to a 12-year-old boy, Adams said.

The boy was walking along the road after leaving a friend’s house and the friend’s parents were sitting on the porch. They saw the van driving slowly up the street and the man call the child over to his car.

They said the boy took off running and the man drove away.

Adams said the officer questioned the boy, who told them the man said, “Hey, kid, come here.”

“That was all we really got out of him,” Adams said, adding they don’t know what the man’s intention was, but the police want people to be aware of it.

Anyone who has any information about the incident is asked to contact the police at (724) 964-8891.

Are you concerned enough about the Heartbleed bug on the Internet to change all of your social media and website passwords?

Yes. It’s always a good idea to change passwords regularly anyway. I just have so many, I’m not sure where to start.
No. From what I’ve read, companies are still trying to figure out how to fix the flaw. The bad guys will just have access to my NEW passwords, too.
Not sure, but I blame Al Gore. He invented the Internet, right? How’s he going to get us out of this mess?
