TENAFLY, N.J. – Tenafly police were investigating a 10-year-old boy’s report that an elderly driver asked if he needed a ride and then questioned him about flags posted around the business district.
The boy told police the 70-something man pulled up in a black sedan near the rear of the municipal complex on Tenafly Road just before 1 p.m. Saturday, Capt. Michael deMoncada said Tuesday.
The driver, who had gray and white hair and was smoking a cigarette, began talking with him, so he ran off, the youngster told police.
The sedan headed north on Tenafly Road, he said.
Patrol officers checked the area with no luck and alerted neighboring police and the school district, deMoncada said.
Anyone who saw something that day or has information that could help the investigation is asked to contact Tenafly police: (201) 568-5100 .
