John Reed, of the 400 block of Division Street in Lykens, says a Bigfoot type of creature is responsible for smashing the windows and taillights out of his 1973 Dodge Winnebago.
It wasn’t a person. I didn’t see any clothes or coat or anything like that,” said the 39-year-old Reed, who is a member of Lykens Valley Sasquatch Hunters. “I don’t think it was bear. It didn’t move like a bear.”
The incident took place just after midnight along a dirt road off of White Oak Road on state game lands in Jackson Township, upper Dauphin County.
State police at Lykens issued a press release this morning saying they were investigating it as a criminal mischief complaint.
Reed said he saw something moving outside the camper and turned on an outside light. Moments later, the camper was “bombarded by rocks” coming out of the woods, he said.
“I’m sure it wasn’t a group of kids in the woods messing around,” Reed said. “I would have seen them or heard them.”
Dauphin County District Attorney Edward Marsico Jr. said he was unaware of the incident, but said if a creature is caught, his office would prosecute the alleged Sasquatch.
“We have been searching for him for years,” Marsico said with a laugh. “We would be glad to prosecute, assuming the elusive thing is captured.”
The trooper investigating the incident said this was the first report of an incident involving Bigfoot in the area. According to the trooper, pending further information the investigation is not being actively pursued.
