Albemarle County police are asking people in Crozet to be alert, after an incident that was first described as a "suspicious circumstance," ended with a juvenile being chased by a stranger into her home.
The incident reportedly happened around 6 PM Monday night in the 2600 block of Browns Gap Turnpike.
Police say the suspect drove past a house a few times, got out of a vehicle, and chased the juvenile up the driveway. The juvenile is safe.
The suspect has not been identified, and police are investigating.
