Champaign County sheriff details 'stranger danger' incident

CHAMPAIGN — Authorities are investigating a report of a man attempting to entice a teenage girl to enter his vehicle.

Champaign County Sheriff Dan Walsh said the girl was jogging around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in the area of Dobbins and Roland drives in northwest Champaign when a man allegedly pulled up near her several times and tried to initiate conversation.

Given the man’s alleged actions, Walsh said, it is reasonable to assume he wanted the girl to enter his vehicle, which she did not.

The only description provided of the vehicle was that it was silver.

The suspect was described as a bald, light-skinned black man in his 30s. He was said to be wearing a red shirt and sunglasses.
