Western Springs cops warn of strangers approaching young boys: Alert

Posted: Updated:
WESTERN SPRINGS, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police have issued a warning to residents about two related incidents involving suspicious people in an SUV approaching children in west suburban Western Springs, Pioneer Press is reporting.

Both incidents occurred about 6:15 p.m. Saturday on the 4800 and 4900 blocks of Law Avenue, where police said a late model, white Chevy Suburban with an Illinois plate drove up, and a woman offered candy to two separate groups of boys between ages 9 and 14.

The woman was described as white, in her 20s with dark hair and a "raspy" voice, wearing a dark shirt. There also was a white man in his 20s in the passenger seat, wearing a black baseball cap and white shirt.

Witnesses said the man appeared to be filming the youths with an "I-phone" type of device, and the woman asked one of the groups if they "wanted to film some video."

Police said there was no actual or attempted physical contact made with any of the children, and the SUV immediately left the area. Several responding police units checked the area but were unable to locate it.
