Police say a brief scare at a Lake Monticello beach this weekend is nothing to be concerned about.
A woman reported Friday night a man asked her daughter if she wanted to see his dog. The mom told him to stay away. She reported the exchange to police 30 minutes later.
Police now say it appears the man had been walking around the beach prior to that, and was trying to help retrieve the girl when she ran ahead of her family. Police say the incident was not as serious as first reported.
