Needham police seek woman who approached 5-year-old boy

Needham police are searching for a woman who approached a 5-year-old boy Thursday night, but they say she might just be a jogger.

A 5-year-old boy told police he was riding on a toy in his yard on Concord Street when a young woman walked up to him. She did not say anything or touch him, police said.

He said he ran into his house and the woman ran down Concord Street toward Manning Street. There where no other witnesses, police said.

Officers have searched for the woman to no avail. The boy told officers she was a white woman, with dark hair, and she was wearing black clothes with white stripes, police said.


The police said it was possible the woman was a concerned jogger trying to keep the boy from riding into the roadway.
