Mount Prospect Police Alert: Two Suspicious Incidents, Possible Attempted Child Luring

On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, at approximately 4:00 PM an 11 year-old child was walking in the block of 400 South William Street. The juvenile walked past a parked tan colored minivan when the front seat passenger shouted to the juvenile, “Come here!” The juvenile shouted back “No!” and ran away to a nearby friend’s house to immediately report what happened to an adult. Mount Prospect Police officers were notified, and responded immediately. Police searched the area for the minivan, but were unable to locate the vehicle. The vehicle is described as a tan colored older model minivan — possibly a Ford Windstar or Chrysler Town and Country. The driver of the minivan is described as a white male, approximately 30-40 years old. The front seat passenger of the minivan is described as a white male, approximately 30-40 years old, wearing a black baseball style hat and a black hooded sweatshirt.

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, at approximately 12:30 PM two juveniles, a 13 year-old and 14 year-old, were walking, while it was raining in the area of Owen Park, 100 South Owen Street. A silver-colored Nissan pulled alongside the juveniles, and the driver asked them if they wanted a ride. The juveniles ignored the driver, and pretended to make a phone call on their cell phone. The Nissan was driven away, with both suspicious subjects inside, towards Central Road. The juveniles immediately went to the police station to report the incident. Officers searched the area for the silver-colored Nissan, but were unable to locate it. The driver of the Nissan is described as a white male, approximately 40-60 years old, with white hair, and wearing glasses.

The Mount Prospect Police Department urges parents and children living in these areas to be extra vigilant in the days ahead and to call 9-1-1 immediately if a subject and/or vehicle matching these descriptions is observed. The Mount Prospect Police Department reports they will have an increased presence in the area.

Additionally, the Mount Prospect Police Department urges parents to use this incident as an opportunity to review safety rules with their children and to report any suspicious activity to the police immediately by calling 9-1-1.
