STILLWATER, Okla. — The Cushing Police Department is investigating an incident on Monday of an unknown white male trying to gain access to a Cushing resident’s home.

Chief Tully Folden said the resident did not report a physical description of the man, but said he asked for the resident’s child. When the resident asked the male why, he reportedly said he had to leave.

The suspect was driving a black Nissan. Police inspected nearby businesses to see if surveillance camera’s spotted the car, but nothing came up.

Police are unsure whether the incident is related to a similar one approximately one week ago when an unknown person, this time a female, tried gaining access to a resident’s home.

The resident did not initially report the incident to police, but she posted via Facebook about the incident.

The resident let the woman into the house to use the bathroom. The resident said the woman was driving a pickup.

“We don’t have any information as far as who it could be,” Folden said. “If anything out of the ordinary happens, or if there is a suspicious person asking for children, we ask that you call police. At this time, we have no connection between the incident that happened (Monday) and the one that happened a week ago.”

To report suspicious activity, contact Folden or Bill McCarty at the Cushing Police Department at 918-225-1212
