Racine Police investigating three reported incidents of child enticement
RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Racine Police Department is currently investigating three reported incidents of child enticement which have happened over the past few days.
In these incidents, Racine Police say an adult male attempted to talk to students as they were walking to school.
In each incident, the suspect was described as a black male, 25 to 35 years of age, average to thin build, medium to light complexion, with short hair and a full beard.
His vehicle is described as an older beat up black four-door sedan with some rust. The rear license plate may be hanging loose or crooked.
On Tuesday morning, a student was walking through the old Pick 'n Save parking lot on Rapids Drive when the suspect questioned her about her name and age. The student then ran into the school.
A short time later, the suspect approached a student walking to school in the 1300 block of Albert Street. The suspect asked her age. When the student got on her cell phone, the suspect drove out of the area.
Sharon Buchanan lives on that block. She said her granddaughter was approached while walking to school.
"It's just a horrible feeling," Buchanan said."I just gave her instructions, here's the instructions of what you're going to do if it ever happened again: talk to the police until you get to school, don't hang up, they will talk with you until you're safe."
On Wednesday morning, the suspect approached a student in the area of 12th and Harbridge and asked to drive her to school. When the student met up with other students, the suspect drove out of the area.
Anyone with information is asked to call Racine Police.
