Salem police say 'suspicious' car was just a dad following son home from school
Detective Bob Genest, after an investigation that included talking to residents in the area of Fisk School, determined the "suspicious subject/vehicle" belonged to a Sullivan Court man. Police said another resident reported seeing a car matching the description parked at a Sullivan Street address.
The owner, whom police did not identify in a news release, told Genest he occasionally lets his son walk home from school, but follows him from his car.
Genest confirmed the father's story, and the 10-year-old, when shown a photo of the man's car, confirmed it was the vehicle that followed him on April 10.
The boy had left Fisk School around 5 p.m. that day and was walking along Sullivan Street when he noticed he was being followed by a blue car.
The driver did not say anything to him and by the time the child reached his home, it had circled the neighborhood a couple of times, police said at the time.
The boy said a driver of a green van then approached him and told him to make sure he told his mother what happened.
