BREAKING NEWS UPDATE (4:30 p.m.): The owner of a van being sought in a possible luring attempt this afternoon told authorities that the report was mistaken and that he was coming to speak with them, Dumont Police Chief Joseph Falbourn told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
“He said it wasn’t him,” Falbourn said.
The incident reportedly occurred at the corner of New Milford and Washington avenues just before 3:45.
The driver was described only as Hispanic and “small.”
Dumont police were given a license plate number of his 2006 Ford Econoline van, however.
The number was broadcast and published on CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
Englewood police went to the man’s business, at their Dumont colleagues’ request, and he then phoned Dumont headquarters a little while ago, the chief said.
