BELLEVILLE – A string of suspicious-persons incidents has Belleville Police [3] urging the public to exercise caution while out and about in the city [4].

Police are investigating three occasions where women were followed by men driving suspicious vehicles. The incidents took place between March 4 and 11 [5].

The latest one involved a woman who was driving and noticed she was being followed by a man in a newer-model Dodge Caravan [6].

All residents should be aware of their surroundings while driving and walking on city streets, said Det.-Sgt. Jeremy Ashley.
