[ARCHIVED] Child Enticement

On September 18, 2017, Twin Falls Police received two separate reports of a male in a grey colored 4 door car trying to talk young girls in to getting into his car.  This occurred in the area of Harrison Elementary School. 

The first incident occurred at the corner of Harrison and Altair.  The girl reported an older gray 4 door car with Idaho plates pulled up next to her and a white male in his 30’s or 40’s, wearing glasses, started talking to her.  She told him she needed to go home and kept walking towards home very quickly where she told her mother what had taken place.  This occurred at approximately 5:15 to 5:30 pm.

The second incident was about 5:30-5:45 pm.   A second girl was walking in the area of Wirsching and Polk and a grey car with tinted windows pulled up next to her and said he could give her a ride home.  She told the driver no and he started yelling at her.  He was described as a white male with red hair.  His age was estimated to be between 20-40 years old.  He may have some facial hair or really bad acne.  She said the car possibly has tinted windows.

Twin Falls Police Detectives and School Resource Officers are currently following up on several leads to these events.   The Twin Falls Police Departments asks parents to please take a moment to talk with your student about their personal safety and what to do if they are approached by a stranger. The Twin Falls Police Department also reminds parents and guardians to speak with your children about the danger talking to strangers or accepting rides from strangers can pose and to report any concerning behavior to a trusted adult as soon as possible.
