NORTH AURORA – The North Aurora police department is investigating a suspicious incident that happened Tuesday afternoon.

At approximately 3:29 p.m. Tuesday, North Aurora police officers responded to White Oak Drive and Whitney Court for a suspicious incident.

According to a press release from the North Aurora police department, officers learned that three juveniles were playing in the front yard when a vehicle stopped in the roadway, and the driver said to them, “Hey you guys want to hang out?”

Neither the driver nor the passenger got out of the vehicle or made any attempt to approach the juveniles, the press release stated. There was another vehicle behind the stopped car that was honking the horn, according to the release.

Following the incident, the juveniles ran to the house and summoned an adult. The vehicle then drove away southbound on White Oak. Officers checked the area thoroughly but were unable to locate the vehicle.

The vehicle is being described as a newer car that is silver in color and a similar size to a Chevy Caprice. The driver of the vehicle was described as a white or Hispanic male in his 60s with a gray hair “comb over” and wearing a red or orange flannel type patterned shirt.

The passenger was described as a Hispanic male in his 50s wearing a baseball cap.

Approximately 20 minutes later, officers responded to the area of White Oak Drive and Messenger Circle for a report of the same or similar vehicle driving through the area again. The vehicle left the area driving northbound on White Oak, the release stated.

Officers again checked the area but were unable to locate the vehicle.

The incident remains under investigation.  Anyone with information concerning this incident is asked to call North Aurora Police Department at 630-897-8705.
