Warwick Police Department Headlines

Warwick Police are investigating a suspicious incident which occurred in the area of Osceola Avenue yesterday. Shortly after 3:30pm, a 12 year old student from the area reported to police that she was approached from behind by someone who tugged on her backpack and told her to "come here." The girl reacted by running home and reporting this incident to her parents.

Police continue to investigate this incident and have saturated the area with extra patrols. The only description of the individual is that of a thin white male wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt, jeans with holes, and white/purple basketball sneakers.
