The following was reported by a female motorist:
“While driving on a rural end of the roadway on Thursday morning, I saw an infant car seat on the side of the road with a blanket draped over it. For whatever reason, I did not stop, even though I had all kinds of thoughts running through my head. But when I got to my destination, I called the Canton PD and they were going to check it out. But, this is what the Police advised even before they went out there to check….”
“There are several things to be aware of … gangs and thieves are now plotting different ways to get people (mostly women) to stop their vehicle and get out of the car.”There is a gang initiation reported by the local Police Department where gangs are placing a car seat by the road…with a fake baby in it…waiting for a woman, of course, to stop and check on the abandoned baby.
“Note” The location of this car seat is usually beside a wooded or grassy area and the person –woman– will be dragged into the woods, beaten and assaulted, and usually left for dead. If it’s a man, they’re usually beaten and robbed.
DO NOT STOP FOR ANY REASON!!!
AND REPORT WHAT YOU SAW, BUT DO NOT EVEN SLOW DOWN.
Please talk to your loved ones about this. This is a new tactic being used in the NorthEast.
