** COMMUNITY ALERT**
(Two Separate Incidents of Suspicious Person/ Circumstances)

On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, at approximately 4:00 PM an 11 year old was walking in the 400 block of South William Street.  The juvenile walked past a parked tan colored minivan when the front seat passenger shouted to the juvenile, “Come here!”  The juvenile shouted back “No!” and ran away to a nearby friend’s house to immediately report what happened to an adult.  Mount Prospect Police Officers were notified, responded, and searched the area for the minivan but were unable to locate it.  The tan colored older model minivan described, is possibly a Ford Windstar or Chrysler Town and Country.  The driver of the minivan is described as a white male, approximately 30-40 years old.  The front seat passenger of the minivan is described as a white male, approximately 30-40 years old, wearing a black baseball style hat and a black hooded sweatshirt.  

On Saturday, November 4, 2017, at approximately 12:30 PM two juveniles, a 13 year old and 14 year old, were walking, while it was raining in the area of Owen Park, 100 South Owen Street.  A silver colored Nissan pulled alongside the juveniles and the driver asked them if they wanted a ride.  The juveniles ignored the driver and pretended to make a phone call on their cell phone; the Nissan subsequently drove away towards Central Road.  The juveniles immediately went to the police station to report the incident.  Officers searched the area for the silver colored Nissan but were unable to locate it.  The driver of the Nissan is described as a white male, approximately 40-60 years old, with white hair and wearing glasses.

The Mount Prospect Police Department urges parents and children living in these areas to be extra vigilant in the days ahead and to call 9-1-1 immediately should a subject and/or vehicle matching these descriptions be observed.  The Mount Prospect Police Department will have an increased presence in the area.

Additionally, the Mount Prospect Police Department urges parents to use this incident as an opportunity to review safety rules with their children and to report any suspicious activity to the police immediately by calling 9-1-1.
