Police: Downers Grove boy approached by suspicious man

DOWNERS GROVE — Police are investigating a report of a suspicious man who approached a 13-year-old near Saratoga and Ogden avenues early Monday morning.

About 8:05 a.m. the boy was walking to school near Westbrook West Condos, 4250 Saratoga Ave., when a vehicle driven by a lone male approached. The man rolled down his window and offered him a ride, Downers Grove police say. The boy immediately fled the area on foot, according to police.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic man about 50 years old with a gray mustache and dark spots under his eyes. He was reportedly wearing a tan jacket. The vehicle he was driving was possibly a light blue four-door Buick or Mercury with damage on the driver’s side trunk.

Officers searched the immediate area without results. Police have increased patrols in the area and at all local schools, according to a police statement.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Downers Grove Police Department at 630-434-5600 or 911.
