UPDATE Westport police said they have closed their investigation into the case of what was earlier reported as a “suspicious” incident involving a man offering a ride to a 13-year-old girl today in the Compo Beach area.
They said the man lived in the neighborhood and had come forward to say he had merely offered the ride to the youngster at about 7:30 a.m. because of snow and rain that was falling.
Driving a van, the man offered the ride to the teen as she was waiting without an umbrella for a school bus in the Apple Tree Trail-Murvon Court area.
The male identified himself to the student as “living around here,” police said in their initial report. The incident was witnessed by a parent who was sitting in a car with her children waiting for the same bus, police said.
