Mom, daughter’s boyfriend have awkward first meeting



ELLSWORTH — As anyone who is or was once a teenager knows, introducing a significant other to one’s parents is not always easy.

Though bringing a new boyfriend to a family gathering or a girlfriend to a special dinner might seem stressful — will Dad be mean to him? Will Grandma approve? — those pale in comparison to one Ellsworth family’s recent experience.

Around 9:15 p.m. on June 12, a 911 call was transferred to the dispatcher on duty at the Ellsworth Police Department. A woman who lives on a short road off of Surry Road reported “finding a naked man in her house.”

The naked man, later found to be the caller’s 16-year-old daughter’s boyfriend, took off from the house along with the daughter.

Detective Dotty Small said Officer Rick Roberts and Sgt. Glenn Moshier responded to the call. They later reached the teen on her cell phone, but she refused to give any information about her boyfriend — name, age or anything else.

“We have no idea who he was,” Small said.
