DARIEN — A Downers Grove South High School student was walking home around 3:53 p.m. Wednesday when she noticed a suspicious older gold minivan driven by a male with facial hair at 71st Street and Exner Road in Darien.

The student told police the vehicle passed her and then braked ahead of her, police said. There was no conversation between the driver and student and no attempt was made to coerce her into vehicle.

The student went between residential yards as a preventive measure and noticed the vehicle circle the block several times before leaving the area. The police were notified, arrived and checked the area with negative results.

Darien area schools are being notified as a precautionary measure. Darien police will have increased patrols in the area for the immediate future.

For those who have further information, or have been involved in a similar incident, call the Darien Police Department at 630-971-3999.
