SBPD Investigating Accostings to Females

_____________________

During the course of the last three weeks, we have identified three cases in which females, ages 10, 12 and 23 years old have been approached and/or accosted by what could be the same suspect.

At this time no positive link has been made in the three incidents, however we would like to make the following description and method of operation public in the event there are other individuals who have been approached by this person or persons.

Description:

Male, African American.
Approx. 20-30 yrs. of age.
Average height/weight
Driving a Red Mid-Size passenger car or
a Red/Burgundy SUV with custom rims.

In two of the cases, the suspect approached the females on foot, in another case the man stayed in the vehicle.
In two of the cases, the suspect asked then demanded that the females enter his vehicle. In the other case, the suspect approached the female on foot after exiting the vehicle but said nothing as the victim fled.

Incident one: 2300 E. Vine St., 7:15 AM
Incident two: Irish Hills Apartments., 9:30 PM
Incident Three: 2500 E. Rockne Dr., 4:00 PM

Unfortunately, there are no more or better descriptors regarding these cases. We feel however, that there is a high probability that similar, unreported incidents having occurred and would like to hear from any persons having encountered this subject. Additionally, although the subject has not reportedly made physical contact with any of the females he has confronted, we are operating under the belief that the subject does not have good intentions. We would further like to caution the public to be aware of this individual and remind both children and adults to travel in groups when possible, especially during the walk to school or when walking in deserted areas such as parking lots.

If there is a contact with this person occurring or having just occurred, individuals are urged to call 911 immediately. For any person who has been approached by individual in the recent past, they are asked to call the SBPD Investigative Division and relay any pertinent information.
