Whats SWFL Is Talking About 4/16

Charlotte County police are looking for a man who offered young girls food and drinks to leave with him while at the Cedar Grove Pool in Northport. The man was wearing a pink swimsuit and fedora and spoke in a thick German or Russian accent. If you know anything call the Northport P.D. This is the same pool where sex offender Timothy Rice allegedly became involved with several young girls. He was eventually arrested.

Reportedly he tried to compensate the victim but they refused and contacted police.
