On September 20, 2019, at approximately 2:00 p.m., the Wheaton Police Department responded to the 500 block of East Parkway Drive for a report of an attempted child abduction.
Two juveniles were walking on the sidewalk when they were approached by an African American male driving an older model black SUV. The male driver asked the juveniles for their phone numbers and requested they come over to his vehicle to give him the numbers. The male driver left the area eastbound on Parkway after the juveniles declined to give a phone number. The male driver was described as in his 40's, wearing a black shirt and a red baseball hat.
The police department encourages anyone with information to contact Lieutenant Bill Cooley at 630-260-2077.
