Barrington police arrested Rodney T. Peterson Monday March 5, 2012 at his apartment unit at 500 West Miner Street in Arlington Heights after an investigation of his license registration, and following an incident involving two Barrington students who reported that a stranger acted suspiciously toward them while they walked home from school on Friday March 2, 2012. Two 13-year-old students reported that a stranger stopped his 2002 dark-colored Lincoln four-door sedan, and began talking with the teens. The stranger allegedly asked the students “How far are you walking?” and “Do you need a ride home?” near Prospect Avenue and Waverly Road in Barrington.

The students refused the offer, and one of the students typed the vehicle’s license number in her cell phone. The license information was key to the investigation and subsequent arrest.

Peterson was charged with disorderly conduct, and is scheduled for a court date of March 19, 2012.

Police offer children the following rules regarding contact with strangers:

Don’t get into a conversation with strangers who try to talk to you.

If the stranger continues trying to talk to you or stops the vehicle, run home or run to the nearest public place and immediately tell an adult what has happened.

Never walk up to a car of a stranger and never walk off with a stranger.

Try to walk with a friend or group of fellow students, whether it is home, to and from school or to the bus stop.

If you have a cell phone, call 911 immediately.

Try to remember as much as you can about the stranger and vehicle, but focus on saying ‘no’ to rides from strangers, and keeping a distance from strangers.

Police do not believe the latest incident is connected to an incident that occurred on Friday January 20, 2012 at about 3:30 p.m. when a male stranger approached a 13-year-old girl as she was walking home from her school bus stop near Dundee Avenue and Lake Street in Barrington.

The offender was described as a male/white, 40-50-years-old, with a heavy build, white and hair and beard.
