Crystal Lake police are investigating a “suspicious” incident in which a child was approached by a man while waiting for the school bus on Monday morning in the area of Virginia Road and Darlington Lane.
At 7 a.m., an unknown white man in a vehicle described as a red sedan with tinted windows approached the girl and told her to get in, police said. The child ran from the scene and later reported the incident to a trusted adult. Police didn’t release the girl’s age.
The man was described by police as being in his 30s, balding, wearing a black sweatshirt and gray pants and yellow, square-rimmed glasses.
The girl reported that the man previously had approached her two other times within the past year under similar circumstances, but he was driving a white sedan at those times.
