**ALL YOUNG LADIES WHO DRIVE AT NIGHT BY YOURSELF PLEASE BE CAREFUL**
Tonight I had the scariest experience of my life! 
As, I left work tonight at 10 there was a parked van across from my job and when I pulled out of my job it followed behind me, but I didn’t think much of it until I realized I didn’t have much gas left as I thought to make it home! So I decided to stop at the nearest gas station, and this van pulled behind me at the gas station to the pump right behind mines! So, I started to wonder what they were doing as I waited in my car to see if they got out of there van which no one did after 5 minutes, so I decided to just leave and when I pulled out they pulled out behind me and onto the interstate! They followed me from dauphin Street all the way to Theodore! Every lane I got in the got in behind me, so I was scared to go straight home so I called 911 and the dispatcher gave me directions to the closest cop near me and when I came to the parking lot the car followed behind me until they saw the cops and turned around! The cops followed me home and then walked me to my front door! I have never been so scared in my life, I didn’t know what could have happened to me, thank God for MPD!

In another Facebook post from Sunday a woman says she had an encounter with a creepy van that had blacked out windows at a Winn Dixie, “I notice every aisle I went down, two men were on it….I decided to go to the opposite side of the store near the produce just to make sure…look up and they’re both standing there.” 

She says she got an employee to walk out to her car, “I noticed the two men sitting in a little blue old Astro van. All the windows were sprayed back except the windshield.” She pointed the van out to the manager, and the van took off she says. She writes that she’s the third woman to report the van. Police have not confirmed this encounter or if it was connected to the previous report.

Yet another woman in Semmes said she had an encounter with a creepy van right at her own home.
