BRONXVILLE — An unidentified man who was spotted taking pictures in front of the Bronxville School was stopped and questioned by police, according to a dispatch from Chief Christopher Satriale.
In the e-mail alert sent out by the Bronxville police department today, Satriale said his force has been in contact with other police departments about the man, who was not arrested or publicly identified.
Bronxville Assistant School Superintendent John Kehoe said Thursday that the district is aware of the incident and sent out a bulletin to parents about “stranger safety.”
Satriale did not return calls for comment.
It was unclear when the incident happened.
According to Satriale’s dispatch, police responded to a call at the Bronxville School of a man taking photographs in front of the school. The man was stopped by Bronxville police and identified. Police said he consented to an examination of his camera. The camera revealed a few pictures of girls walking on Pondfield Road.
Satriale’s alert also said the man consented to a search of his car. There was an additional still camera in the car and video camera. There were no pictures of girls or young children in the still camera; the video camera revealed video of girls exiting school buses in a jurisdiction outside of Bronxville, the alert said.
Satriale said no criminal activity was uncovered and the information garnered by the Bronxville police investigation was shared with other, unnamed departments.
“Be assured that the police department will be exceedingly vigilant in monitoring the situation and we will forward any pertinent information to the community,” it said.
