Third strange note for parents found in mailbox

ARUNDEL (WGME) -- Parents are on edge after another suspicious handwritten note pops up in York County that appears to threaten children.

A copy of the first note shows its signed by Your Friend, Pervert, and Kennebunk Police say the third note found in Arundel Monday is almost identical.

Now, parents in both towns are buzzing about this bizarre behavior.

You dont know if he is lurking in the bushes when your kids get off the school bus, said Arundel mom Tammy Wilkins.

Like a lot of parents, Wilkins is always worried about her 13-year-old son.

I make him call me every day, she said.

Now, she's got good reason to believe he could be in real danger.

It's crazy someone would be doing something like that, Wilkins said.

In a handwritten message, a self-proclaimed "pervert" threatened to stalk children at a home in Arundel.

Kennebunk Police Chief Bob MacKenzie believes the man caught on camera in Kennebunk last week, is the same man responsible for the latest scare in Arundel.

Eric and Dianne Falconer own a security systems company and have cameras all over their property.

He chose the wrong house, Eric Falconer said.

After receiving the strange note, they looked back through their video to find a man putting a piece of paper inside their mailbox on Ross Road at about 8:15 p.m. last Tuesday night.

I got goose bumps everywhere, Dianne Falconer said.

It appears the man may have chosen the Falconers home randomly, because they dont have any young children. Their daughter is 19 years old.

No matter how old your children get you still worry about them, Dianne said.

Chief MacKenzie says his investigators are taking this case very seriously and now working with the York County Sheriffs Office after the recent report in Arundel.

If they were doing it as a joke, its a sick joke, Chief MacKenzie said. As a father myself, you see a note like that and its very concerning.

He's asking parents to keep a close eye on their kids, especially through this investigation.

Meanwhile, residents are promising to keep a close watch for the suspect.

I dont care if you've done something wrong or not, if i think it's you Im going to call you out on it, said Arundel resident Ginger Nadeau.

Chief MacKenzie says he is talking with the US Postal Service and the Attorney Generals Office to figure out which charges, if any, this suspect could face.

If you recognize the man in the surveillance photo or see anything suspicious in your neighborhood, call Kennebunk Police at (207) 985-6121.
