Riverhead School Supe: Police notified of men reportedly videotaping two young girls

Police have been notified of reports that two men were caught videotaping young girls in their driveway in the Manorville area, Riverhead Central School District Superintendent Dr. Aurelia Henriquez wrote in a message Tuesday afternoon.

Dr. Henriquez said the district administration learned this morning about the incident that involved two white males believed to be in their 30s videotaping the girls from a white SUV.

The office of the superintendent said in an email to the Riverhead News-Review that  the incident happened on Sept. 22, but the district was not notified until Tuesday morning.

Dr. Henriquez cautioned parents to discuss necessary stranger safety protocols with their children and to report any suspicious behavior immediately.

Tuesday’s Riverhead Central School District message comes days after Shoreham-Wading River Superintendent Gerard Poole released a message regarding two men in a silver sedan who were reportedly taking cell phone photos of students as they were dropped off at a bus stop in Wading River.

“We have been in contact with the Riverhead Police Department on this matter and have been advised additional patrol vehicles will be in the area to monitor the section firsthand,” Mr. Poole wrote in a message posted on the district website Saturday.
