Cornell Police warned members of the community in an email Sunday, detailing two incidents in which a vehicle “aggressively” approached female pedestrians in Cayuga Heights late at night, according to a CUPD crime alert.

The alert says the Cayuga Heights Police Department received one report on Aug. 22 and another on Sept. 1, both saying that a white or cream colored van, of an older model, approached pedestrians walking along Triphammer Road between Sisson Place and Country Club Road.

In both incidents, the vehicle was occupied by two people who appeared to be in their 30’s. One passenger was a white male driver and the other a white female passenger, who had dark glasses and curly hair, according to the alert.

On August 22, the two apparently told the pedestrians that they were a taxi and asked if they wanted a ride, the alert said.

Anyone with information that would aid the ongoing investigation is asked to contact Cornell Police or the Cayuga Heights Police Department.
