DCPD Probes for “Suspicious Male” Posing as CYFS Employee

DUBOIS –The DuBois City Police Department initiated an investigation Thursday night into a “suspicious male” who reportedly posed as a Children, Youth and Family Services employee.

According to the incident report, the male arrived at a residence around 5 p.m. Thursday in the 700 block of Maple Avenue. He claimed to represent CYFS, police said.

Further, police said the male reportedly advised he was there at the request of the school district and was to take the children into his custody. The male neither presented a CYFS identification card nor any sort of badge.

Police said the homeowners questioned the male and then closed the door. They also told police about remembering the male from a similar incident. Sometime in July, the male reportedly arrived at the residence and presented a badge to the homeowners’ young daughter. When questioned, the male left, police said.

In both incidents, police said the male left on foot. A vehicle wasn’t present at the residence. This time, police observed footprints in the snow, leading to the side of the residence.

“It appeared as if someone had been standing in front of the dining room window,” police said.

Police described the suspect as a white male who is in his 50’s. He stands approximately 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall with a slim build. He has short, grayish hair and mustache and was wearing a blue, trench coat and ball cap.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the DuBois City Police Department at 814-371-2323.
