Clarksville Police issues Facts about False Information being posted on a Clarksville Facebook page

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – In the last few days, a Clarksville resident in the Savannah West Subdivision has been posting on his Facebook page that there was a sexual predator in his neighborhood on September 9th, 2015.

On his post, he stated that a white male with short hair driving a grey BMW tried to abduct a 12-year-old female. After his attempt was unsuccessful, he circled around and went after two boys.

Clarksville Police responded to incidents on Savannah West neighborhood. These incidents were deemed “Suspicious Activity” calls. No crime occurred in either incident.

The Facts

After collecting the information from two 911 calls and speaking with one of the parents’ of the children involved in the incidents on September 9th, 2015, the following is what occurred:

On September 9th, 2015, the 12-year-old female walking in the Savannah West neighborhood was approached by the driver of the BMW, who appeared to be a licensed juvenile (possibly 17-year-old according to the information given to the dispatcher).

The driver told the female to get in the car, and he would take her where she needs to go. She told him “no” several times and then to “get out of here” and she ran off to a friend’s house. According to the parent, the driver did not attempt to force the female into the car and did not get out of his car.

He did circle around and approached other juveniles walking in the neighborhood. The juveniles walking refused a ride from the driver and left the area.

Again, there were no accusations of the driver forcing the juveniles’ into the car and nothing reported about the driver leaving his car. Clarksville Police were called out to both incidents. These incidents were deemed “Suspicious Activity” calls. No crime occurred in either incident.

We do take Suspicious Activity seriously, and District 3 is looking into both incidents. The District 3 Commander has set up extra patrol in the area to look out for the suspicious vehicle and driver.

There is no evidence that the driver of the BMW is a sexual predator and, according to the information provided, he made no attempt to force the children into the car. Therefore, there is no evidence of an abduction.

Abduction Defined: the action or an instance of forcibly taking someone away against their will.

IF THE PUBLIC IS EVER IN DANGER OF THESE TYPES OF CRIMES, THE CPD WILL LET YOU KNOW!
