WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- West Allis Police are investigating after a Wilson Elementary School student said she was followed by a suspicious man in a white van.
According to a letter to parents and staff by the superintendent of the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District, the student said she was approached by a man driving a large, white Ford passenger van. The van had tinted windows and a passenger side window covered with a black plastic bag.
