The Chartiers Valley School District said Bridgeville police are investigating a case where a threatening letter was left in front of a Bridgeville home on March 11. The letter indicated the author was watching the daughter of the resident and threatened to abduct the daughter.
On March 12 around 2:50 p.m., two Chartiers Valley students were apparently followed by a multi-brown colored panel van after they got off their bus in Bridgeville, according to the school district.
The van reportedly stayed approximately 5-to-10 feet behind the two girls as they walked towards their home. When the girls became aware of the van and frightened, they ran toward their home. At this time the vehicle turned around and fled the area. The driver of the van was described as a white male about 50-to-60 years of age with grey and brown hair.
Bridgeville police Chief Chad King said there was no evidence that the driver of the van never made contact to the students and it's not known what his intentions were at the time.
King said they alerted the school district because the incidents happened within days of each other.Authorities are asking that parents and students be vigilant and aware of any suspicious incidents around children in light of the two police reports.
Bridgeville Police are investigating the incidents and are working with the state and other local agencies to attempt to identify persons involved. Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Bridgeville Police Department at 412-221-6052, or 911 in the case of an emergency.
