GLENCOE – The Glencoe Police Department on July 27 issued a crime alert stating that two 11-year-old girls reported they were approached by a man driving a vehicle as they walked on the street at about 5 p.m. on Monday, July 25. The girls told police the man pulled the vehicle next to them and asked if they would like a ride. The girls said they ignored him and continued to walk, but the man followed and again asked them if they would like a ride. When they got to Scott Avenue, they said, the man drove away westbound on Scott and the girls call 9-1-1.
The police department stated that the incident occurred near Euclid and Scott avenues near the Glencoe/Winnetka border, and that the man is described as possibly Hispanic, 25 to 45 years old, clean shaven, with short dark hair. The girls told police he was driving a black, newer-model SUV with tinted rear windows, with an Illinois livery license plate, which has a blue background.
The Glencoe Police Department asks anyone with information to call Deputy Chief Richard Weiner at 847-835-4112. And, as always, if you see or hear suspicious activity, please call 9-1-1 to report it immediately.
