JERSEY CITY –– Police responded this afternoon to a report of a little girl riding a tricycle on the roof of a two-story building on Ocean Avenue near Neptune Avenue, police reports said.
When police knocked on the door of the only apartment in the building with access to the roof, they were met by a man who stated his daughter was never on the roof and is never left unattended, police reports stated.
But the little girl did fit the description given by the 911 caller — a little girl wearing pink pants with a yellow and pink shirt, reports said. And under the window, officers spotted a black and yellow tricycle that also fit the description the caller had given.
No arrests were made and the child did not require medical attention, but the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency was notified around 4:30 p.m. and will respond to the apartment, police reports said.
