Attempted Luring of a Child into a Motor Vehicle

Case #: 12-056

 On Monday March 26, 2012 at approximately 3:10pm, the Yeadon Police responded to the area of 1514 Patricia Drive in the Borough of Yeadon to investigate the Attempted Luring of a Child into a Motor Vehicle.

The eleven year old male, who is a Bell Avenue School student, was walking to his residence in Darby, alone when in the area of 1514 Patricia Drive (Parkview Court Apts.) he was approached by a middle aged white male, who was bald, with a five o’clock shadow and a muscular build.  The male was wearing a long sleeved black hooded sweatshirt and was driving a dark blue Chevrolet, possibly an Impala or Malibu.  The male asked the child to come over to his car and to get into the vehicle.  When another child approached, the male fled the scene in his vehicle.

Anyone observing a similar type incident is requested to call 911 immediately.  Anyone having information regarding this incident is requested to contact the Yeadon Police Department at 610-623-1500.
