It has come to the attention of the Montgomery Police Department that the annual spring activity of certain high school seniors known as “senior assassins” is being carried out in the township. Senior assassins involves competing students or teams chasing their opponents and squirting them with large water guns, thus eliminating them from further play. The game is not supported or condoned by the Montgomery School District. Furthermore, the activity has caused both residents and law enforcement alarm due to the devices and methods utilized by participants.
In our continuing effort to keep residents and motorists safe and fully informed, the police department would like to inform the public this game is currently being played and citizens may notice an increase in both vehicular and pedestrian traffic involving groups of students. Motorists are asked to use extra caution especially at night when those involved may be walking inattentively through residential areas. Parents of participating students should caution their children on the dangers of possessing realistic looking weapons, careless driving and overall risky behavior that could put them or others in jeopardy.
While this game is being played, residents should not assume unusual behavior is associated with the game and police remind anyone who observes any suspicious, unsafe or illegal activity to contact the Montgomery police at (908) 359-3222, or dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency.
Anyone with any questions can contact Lt. James Curry at (908) 359-5011.
