A manhunt is underway in western Pennsylvania after an unusual sighting of a man wearing a mask and carrying a huge object in the woods.
A police officer spotted the man wearing “a large hoodie, red shirt, red pants, red shoes and dark colored pants” on Sunday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
The officer followed him into the woods and called for backup.
The man was spotted in the area of the Hohokam Indian Reservation by two hunters.
The two hunters have since left the area.
The officer followed the man, who turned out to be an old man, to the area where he was spotted by a farmer.
The man said he was hiking with his grandson.
A few hours later, the officer spotted another man wearing the same mask and holding a small wooden box with a red cap on the ground.
The box is about 4 feet tall and has a lid on top.
The farmer and the two hunters told police that they saw a man carrying the object about 15 feet from them, according to police.
Police have not released any details about the incident.
