Police warn of man who tried to lure boy into minivan in Washington Township
The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of man in a minivan who tried to lure a boy inside.
The 11-year-old boy’s mother said the incident happened Wednesday morning at the Stony Creek Apartments in Washington Township. She told police the boy was walking to the school bus stop at about 7:35 a.m. when the man stopped his vehicle and asked the child to get inside.
As the boy turned and walked away, the driver turned his blue vehicle with tinted windows around and followed the child. When the boy began to run, the vehicle left the area.
The child could not describe the driver of the newer model minivan because the man did not roll the window down all the way when he spoke to the child, according to Lt. John Michalke.
The apartments are on Van Dyke, north of 27 Mile.
Anyone with information about the incident should call the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office at (586) 307-9412.
