In Fredrick, MD, a truck driver harassed a 14-year-old girl as she was walking to school. He kept trying to talk to her and get her attention by throwing rose petals and candy out of the window in her direction. The truck made a u-turn and passed her again and the truck driver harassed her some more. The girl then went to a nearby restaurant and called her mother, who notified the police. The driver was not found.

Police are looking into the incident and asks anyone with information to use their tip line at 301-600-TIPS (8477).

Location: Fredrick, Maryland
