Police investigate possible luring of high school runner in Saddle River County Park

SADDLE RIVER, New Jersey (WABC) -- Saddle Brook Police Department, along with Bergen County and Rochelle Park Police, are looking for a white colored BMW suv-type vehicle operated by a black male in his late 20's to early 30's who made comments to a young female jogger who was practicing with her Saddle Brook High School Track team.

The female jogger was running in the Saddle River Bergen County Park in Saddle Brook when she crossed over the river on Railroad Avenue and into Rochelle Park when a African American male driver of a white suv-type BMW yelled out to her "Hey I know you, come get in the car". The car turned into the Rochelle Park side of the County Park and temporarily parked there for a brief time and may of exited with what was described as a small Yorkie type dog.

The jogger ran faster to get away from the area and caught up with her other teammates and reported it to her coach who notified police. It is believed the suspect vehicle may have two letters in the New Jersey license plate "U" and "T".

Anyone who may have seen this vehicle or has any information on this matter is asked to immediately report it to the Saddle Brook Police Department at (201) 843-7000.
