Man’s encounter with girls prompts police attention in St. Charles

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is seeking information on a man who whistled at two 11-year-old girls in St. Charles last week, according to a child incident bulletin issued by the department.

The girls were riding bicycles in the 2400 block of Fox Chase Boulevard just west of Dunham Road in St. Charles when, at about 10:30 a.m. Friday, a man reportedly drove by them on the other side of the landscaped median and whistled at them.

According to police, the girls continued to ride their bikes, and the man turned around and drove west toward the girls.

The girls got off their bikes and ran to a nearby house, police reported.

“The girls acted appropriately and got a good description and then contacted an adult,” police spokesman Paul McCurtain said.

The man was described as white and heavyset, in his early 40s with a dark, full-growth goatee beard and mustache.

He was reportedly wearing a blue T-shirt.

He was driving a mid-1990s red full-size crew cab pickup truck, either a Chevrolet or Ford, police reported, noting the truck bed had rust.

The girls did not get any registration information, police reported.

McCurtain said police would like to talk to the man to get a sense of his intentions.

Call the department at 630-377-4435.
