Police: Beware Of Men Challenging Teens To Rap Battles

Sometimes shady characters use very strange tactics to find victims. Police in Charlton, Massachusetts are warning residents to be on the lookout for men who may be challenging passerby to a rap battle. Police say a black SUV with two or three men in their early 20s inside pulled up to three young teenage boys on Dresser Hill Road on Saturday (March 12th) afternoon. One of the men exited the vehicle and started rapping while the other men asked the boys if they wanted to “spit some bars” with them. When the boys declined, the SUV drove off. Charlton police note on Facebook, “Although this was suspicious behavior and frightening to the boys, nothing made this appear to be an attempted abduction.” (WCVB)
