In this incident, the male suspect, who was reported to have a Russian accent, attempted to contact a student and asked to be shown how to get to nearby schools. The suspect vehicle was described as a green van with flames.
In October, there were two reported incidents of child luring in the city. In both cases, the drivers of vehicles attempted to contact students walking home alone and offered rides home.
The suspects, one female and one male, were alone and both were reported as having “Russian” accents. The vehicle descriptions were a silver minivan and black Audi 4 door.
Police urge anyone who has a similar encounter or observes suspicious activity to call 911 immediately.
