Sheriff's office investigates suspicious incident

MAPLE PARK – Police are investigating a suspicious incident that happened Tuesday near Maple Park after receiving a report that an older man offered a child a ride in his vehicle.

The Kane County Sheriff’s Office received a report of the incident – which was in the 44W400 block of Beith Road – shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday. A suspicious vehicle pulled into the driveway of a home where an 8-year-old boy was outside. The driver asked the child if he wanted a ride, and the boy ran to the house, according to a news release.

The mother of the child also saw the vehicle, describing it as a maroon 1990s model four-door car, possibly with a hatchback. She said the vehicle also had a loud muffler. She described the driver as an older male with white hair, glasses and a wrinkled face.

Deputies checked the area but didn’t locate the vehicle. They received no additional reports of a suspicious vehicle in the area.

Authorities are cautioning parents to keep an eye on their children while they are outside.
