WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A heavy police presence was reported in Wilkes-Barre Monday night.
At about 5:00 p.m., Wilkes-Barre City Police were called to the area of South Welles Street and Midland Court in Wilkes-Barre Monday night for an active investigation.
28/22 News crews previously on scene reported Pennsylvania State Police were also on scene, including their crime scene unit.
Although no information could be provided at this time, the police chief and district attorney said that this is an ongoing investigation.
28/22 News Reporter Emily Allegrucci spoke with a neighbor after they came home from work to the taped-off scene and was shocked to see it.
“I’ve never seen something like this and it’s crazy because the only thing I could see is the child playing and having fun, and, and, all these neighbors are always quiet. So we’ve never seen something like that around here,” said Catalin Basquez.
There is no word at this time on the nature of the incident and 28/22 News will provide more information as it becomes available.
