Thereâ€™s an investigation underway after a man reportedly approached young women and girls in Tompkins County and talked about his desire to have them join him in a commune.
The sheriffâ€™s office started their investigation after a report Monday of a young woman in Newfield who was approached by a man handing out some kind of flyer or postcard.
She was reportedly asked if he wanted to join her in a commune to preserve the white race.
A flyer released by the sheriffâ€™s department, which was connected to the man, explains his desire to 13 girls, ages eight and up, to be part of his commune.
Thereâ€™s been no formal word of any charges that could be pending against the man, but police have confirmed that there were also reports about the man being in the city of Ithaca as well.
