Police Investigate Reported Suspicious Situation in Flower Hill Area of Gaithersburg

The Montgomery County Police Department is currently investigating the report of a suspicious situation in the SealFlower Hill neighborhood of Gaithersburg. Today at approximately 4:48 p.m., officers responded to the area near Flower Hill Elementary School, located at 18425 Flower Hill Way, for the report of a suspicious situation.

Preliminary investigation revealed that two girls, ages 11 and 15, were walking together on the sidewalk adjacent to Flower Hill Way.  Near the elementary school, a white work van approached the girls. The van then stopped in the roadway and a white male driver, believed to be in his 30’s and wearing a white t-shirt, called out to them and blew kisses toward them. The girls continued to walk and then heard the slider door (on the opposite side of the van) open and saw another male exit the vehicle and walk toward them. One of the girls took out her cell phone and both girls began to run. The passenger returned to the van. The van was last seen on Flower Hill Way headed toward Snouffer School Road. The girls ran home and family members called 9-1-1.

There is no further description of the vehicle or two males at this time. Police are asking anyone with information about this incident or any previous activity that might relate to this incident to please the police non-emergency number at 301-279-8000.
