Hanover Police are investigating what might have been a child-luring incident that happened at a public playground in the borough on Sunday.
Police said two 11-year-old Hanover girls were playing in the playground near the corner of DeGuy Avenue and McCosh Street just before 7 p.m. when a silver four-door car, probably a Saab, stopped nearby.
As the girls were walking home, they saw the car slowly following behind them, according to police, who said it approached them near the corner of North Stephen Place and McKinley Avenue.
A man was driving the car and a woman was in the passenger seat. She started asking the girls questions including where they went to school, where they lived and if they wanted to get in the car, police said.
The girls ignored the woman and walked away, at which point the car drove off, police said.
Both the driver and his passenger were described as Asian and spoke broken English, police said. He was in his 30s wearing a black sweatshirt and khaki pants; she was in her 20s with her black hair pulled in a ponytail, police said.
Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call 911, or call police at (717) 637-5575.
